Veggie paella!


I decided to start up this new blog with a typical Spanish dish … Sunday family dish. My mom made it for me last week as my friends were having a chicken one and thus couldn’t have any. Next time I’ll do it myself lol but it’s nice to have a mommy making dishes for you – even more when you get older.

Also ... It's not pronounced PAELA it's like PAEYA 

Ok here it goes ... 

Ingredients: 
  • 1 Cup of rice
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 onion
  • Few morels 
  • 1 Broccoli
  • 2 carrots
  • Green beans
  • Saffron (or colouring) 
How to make the veggie paella:
  1. Peel carrots and onion
  2. Put some water to boil for the broccoli, green beans and the carrots
  3. When it boils pour carrots, green beans and broccoli whilst cutting down the 'trees' 
  4. Let it cook for 10 minutes, meanwhile clean up the peppers and mushroom.
  5. Chop onion and peppers
  6. Bring some oil to heat on a special pan for 'paellas'
  7. Pour the peppers and after 1/2 minutes the onion 
  8. After the boiled veggies are cooked get them out and cut the green beans about 2 cm long. 
  9. Add the rest of the veg and the morels to the 'paellera' and fry them for about 5 minutes under medium heat. 
  10. When all the veggies are done, add some water and about 20 minutes before eating the white rice and coloring. 
  11. Make sure the water covers the rice when you pour it. 
VOILA!!
