Vegan paella

REVIEW THIS RECIPE

Have a nice weekend, guys! For me, the weekend is not loosening because of being full. On Saturday, I’ll take part in a pottery workshop for the whole third day-long, which I do really love. I am looking forward to building my skills and picking up the bowls I made last time. I can’t stand to wait to see what they will look like once fired and glazed. After the seminar, I take off my clothes with a lot of clay-stained clothes and wear something plush when we are going to a restaurant with Duncan’s family, for turning 21 or celebrating Duncan’s niece. On Sunday won’t surprise but you will get the burden – an assortment of fun content and less so is on the agenda.

We have no plan on any recreational this weekend, but if you are into it I suggest that you try this vegan paella on your visitor! although it’s pretty gaudy and somewhat high external, but it’s truly simple to make. It’s all about learning to cook the perfective rice through visual cues alone. If you have a paella wok, dust it of and you’ve already willing. But if not, using a common wok. I actually tried to get myself a paella dish and not anything suitable. I found one that was so large for my needs and another that was coated in teflon, which I did not like so I used my stainless steel pan and it worked well. Here is a wok with a better tight fitting lid as resting the rice is the key of cooking time at last.

After you cap your pan, make sure that you have the right type of rice to hand. If you have no paella rice (There are rather some varieties, such as: senia, bomba or bahfa) almost all of these are available. I’ve used risotto rice (arborio) . It is sold widely because I have a big one that needs to be used up and it worked nicely. The important thing with paella is to estimate the correct liquid to rice ratio and just the cooking time is fit. so please be certain that you measure all three. I think that 200 g of rice needs approximately 2 1/2 cups (600ml) liquid to be cooked for medium ripe in total.

I’m a bit insane (love this term) with my paella and covered it with all the veggies under the sun as I wanted because it looked colorful. Summertime and carnival, but you definitely curb it, especially if you have no routine of buying surplus veggies just because they look good. I am entirely wrong about that – I always get more produce than I set out to buy or what we can physically eat at home and then I get really stressed from wasting. Sometimes I’m bad.

INGREDIENTS

STOCK (optional but recommended)

  • 3 dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 10 cm / 4″ by 20 cm / 8″ piece of kombu
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 vegan stock cube (optional, but I like to add it)
  • fennel offcuts (optional)
  • parsley offcuts

BASIC PAELLA

  • 1 vegan stock cube (if not using homemade stock)
  • 30 ml / 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for grilling
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 200 g / 7 oz ripe tomato (1 large), peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp salt, more to taste
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 80 ml / 1/3 cup vegan white wine
  • 1 Romano pepper, sliced
  • 200 g / 7 oz / 1 slightly heaped cup paella/bomba rice (arborio does good enough job too)
  • a generous pinch of saffron, dissolved in 2 tbsp hot water
  • freshly ground black pepper, to serve

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

  • 200 g / 7 oz zucchini / courgette, sliced
  • 1 fennel, cut into 8 wedges
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup cooked peas or broad beans (or a mixture of both)
  • 8 olives, sliced
  • 4 charred artichoke heart halves, halved
  • chopped fresh parsley, to garnish (optional)

METHOD

  1. If making your own stock, place all the ingredients in a pot with about 750 ml water. Cover and simmer gently for about 45 minutes and set aside. Alternatively, dissolve a vegan stock cube in 500 ml / 2 cups of water instead.
  2. Heat up 2 tsp oil in a paella pan or another (preferably thin-bottomed) pan. Gently fry the onion for about 5 minutes until softened.
  3. Add garlic and fry off until softened and fragrant, stirring the whole time.
  4. Add chopped tomato, salt, smoked paprika, wine, and red pepper.
  5. Allow the tomatoes to break down and the red pepper to soften, it will take about 10 minutes.
  6. While the paella is simmering, char courgette slices, fennel wedges and cherry tomatoes on a heated and lightly oiled grilling pan. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do that in batches. Season and set aside.
  7. Mix the rice into the tomato and red pepper mixture.
  8. Add saffron, saffron water and 500 ml / 2 cups of stock and simmer on a medium heat without stirring for 10 minutes, until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice . If the rice looks dry when 10 minutes is up, top it up with a bit more stock / water so that there is a thin layer of moisture on top of the rice.
  9. Switch the heat off and cover the paella dish with a tight fitting lid or a piece of kitchen foil and allow the rice to rest for 10-15 minutes. It will finish cooking in its own steam.
  10. Top with a selection of charred veggies, peas or broad beans, olives, artichokes and chopped parsley. Serve with lemon wedges and a good grind of black pepper.
