About this recipe: Perfect for vegetarians, but great for meat-eaters too, this hearty rice dish made with starchy short-grain rice is wonderfully rich and satisfying.
Leftover diced chicken or cooked vegetables could be used. Sauté quickly in a little oil before adding to the paella three-quarters of the way through cooking.
My 12 year old sister made this for our family, she made the recipe with mushrooms, peppers, peas, rice, vegetable stock, onions, garlic, carrots, pepper and some chilli powder. She made it very easily with no disasters. The recipe proved a success and I would try it again, even though it looked more like a soup. - 16 Dec 2011
