Paella is one of the famous rice dishes in Valencia of Spain, and it means frying pan. It’s better to cook Paella in a traditional wide, shallow pan, however it can be made in a large nonstick frying one instead. Farmers and labours prepared Paella with a variety of ingredients, they almost made it with meat, specifically white meat or seafood, in order to decrease saturated fats.

In addition, vegans and guys who do not like meat make this delicious meal only with vegetables. It’s a suitable versatile meal which contains enough fibres and is low in fat. Also, any preferred veggies and spices according to your own taste can be adjusted. Therefore, this colourful dish embellishes with different seasonal vegetables like peas, artichokes, and peppers, to name but a few.

Spanish restaurants call it” Paella de verdurass” which is vegan/vegetarian/dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free. Serving in family style may be the reason for choosing paella for special parties since guests traditionally eat directly out of the pan, and it does not serve on plates.

Saffron is the most important and key ingredient that should be a priority to prepare. Using high-quality saffron not only improves the taste and flavour but also enhances the food properties.

VEGETABLE PAELLA using Basic Pantry Staples


  1. Heat a traditional paella pan or a large sturdy skillet one with a medium-high heat. Pour ¼ cup of extra olive oil into the pan, and after 1 minute season some sea salt.
  2. Add half of a red bell pepper which is chopped, 15 to 20 fresh stalks of asparagus that are cut into around 1inch pieces, and 15 ounce can artichoke hearts, remember to pat and dry them with some paper towel or something like that before adding.
  3. Now it’s time to mix these ingredients lightly for 3minutes. Be careful about artichoke hearts, it’s necessary to combine them contiguously and gently in order to avoid burning and breaking apart.
  4. Grab an onion and dice half of it. 90seconds need for mixing the food after adding chopped onions to the pan.
  5. Make a well in the middle of the pan, and start to fry 4to5 cloves of garlic, which are minced, with oil for 30 seconds. After that bring 1 teaspoon of sweet smoked Spanish paprika and mix all together.
  6. Add ½ cup of canned tomato sauce and 1cup of frozen or jarred precooked lima beans. Should you have uncooked lima bean, boil them for about 20minutes.
  7. Season them with sea salt and mix lightly again.
  8. Pour 2.5 cups of vegetable broth, and pinch ½ teaspoon of saffron threads. Mix them quickly. The best way to infusing saffron into broth is letting it boil for one extra minute.
  9. Sprinkle a cup of round rice around the pan and mix them. Now shake the pan quickly. Set aside.
  10. After around 8minutes, lower the fire to a low-medium heat and let it simmer between 4-5 minutes once there is no broth left in the pan.
  11. Heat the pan for 60-90 seconds over medium-high heat to create Socarrat, the famous layer of caramelized burnt rice underneath.
  12. Remove the pan from the heat, and let the rice, which is covered with aluminum foil and a dishcloth, rest for 5minutes.
  13. Uncover the paella pan. Lemon wedges are good choices for the garnish.
