Paella is one of those dishes you love eating in the summer with a nice glass of wine 🍷 

We just couldn't wait for Summer and so we've made this incredible vegetable Paella and wanted to share the recipe with you- why wait for summer? Make this tasty dish today and enjoy! 😉


Ingredients needed:

- 1/2 finely chopped red chilli

- 1 onion, chopped

- 2 garlic clove, finely chopped

- 2tsp smoked paprika

- 300g paella rice

- 1 vegetable stock cube mixed into 900ml hot water

- 150g green beans

- 1 red pepper, diced

- 1 carrot, diced

- A handful of peas

- A handful of sweetcorn

- Pinch of saffron 

- 1 lime sliced into wedges

- A handful of green olives, cut in half



1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large wok/frying pan and sauté the onions, chilli and garlic for a few minutes, until they've softened.

2. Next add in the veggies and stir in the rice, paprika, saffron and cook for a minute, then add the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Now give the rice a try and it should have a little bite to it which means it's done but not overcooked, however if you would like it softer leave for another 5 minutes to cook. 

4. To serve place the lime wedges and olives on top! 


The only question left is... do you want red or white wine? 


Hope you have a rice evening! 😉
