Spanish Vegan Paella #vegan #dinner

It's a family-style feast that is served in a paella skillet directly on your table. You don't need plates, you simply dive directly in! The vibe of the eatery is right on target with its natural intrigue and live Spanish music. We generally have an incredible time when we go.

It's an hour drive so we don't arrive as frequently as we'd like. In this way, I chose to make my very own veggie lover paella at home. I approached the proprietor for certain tips and his greatest suggestion was to NEVER Mix THE PAELLA!

Paella is generally cooked over a fire and the dish were intended for that, so they work best on gas tops, flame broils or fire pits. Be that as it may, I've made it on an electric stove with pleasant outcomes. I needed to pivot the dish more, however the rice still cooked pleasantly.

Before you start, include the vegetable juices and saffron strings to a medium pot. Bring to a stew over medium-high warmth for 1 moment, at that point bring down the warmth just to keep it warm.

This Vegetarian Paella will carry everybody to the table with its particular brilliant shading, smoky flavor, caramelized outside, and mouth-watering fragrance!


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • 4 cups vegetable broth , low sodium
  • 1 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 medium onion , diced
  • 1 red bell pepper , cut into strips
  • 5 cloves garlic , chopped, minced or crushed
  • 1 large tomato , diced (sub 1/2 cup canned)
  • 1 1/2 cups Bomba Rice (sub arborio rice)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt , more to taste
  • Fresh cracked pepper , to taste
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (sub 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas , thawed
  • Garnish (Optional)
  • Lemon wedges
  • Fresh-cut parsley


  1. Add vegetable broth in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Break up the saffron and add it to the broth. When it begins to simmer, give it 1 minute, and then lower the heat just to keep it warm. 
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a 12-inch Paella Pan (or something similarly sized) over medium heat. Once heated, and the onions and peppers. Sauté until softened and lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes.  
  3. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. 
  4. Now add the tomatoes, smoked paprika, and sweet paprika. Sauté for 1-2 minutes. (if using dried thyme, add it with this step)
  5. Add the rice and remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Stir to coat well. Cook for 1 minute to lightly toast the rice and incorporate flavors. Move around occasionally to prevent sticking. 
  6. Add the fresh thyme and slowly pour in broth. Add salt and pepper. Do not stir after this point or it will release starches and cause creamier rice. Turn the heat to medium-high and bring the broth to a heavy simmer for 1-2 minutes. 
  7. Now turn the heat down (between medium-low and medium heat) to a mild simmer. You want to see movement in the pan while the broth is cooking down (don't boil though). Simmer for 15-20 minutes until rice is al dente. Rotate the pan on the burner 1-2 times during cooking for even heat distribution. 
  8. Once the broth is nearly cooked off, you will need to pay close attention to the socarrat forming on the bottom of the pan (the golden rice crust). You will start to hear a snap, crackle, and pop, along with smelling a nutty aroma. This should take 1-2 minutes to form. Stick a fork or spoon straight to the bottom to test if it's forming. (If it smells like it's burning, remove from heat immediately) (*see note).
  9. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the peas to the top of the rice (don't mix in). Cover the pan with foil and let the paella rest for 5-8 minutes. Top with fresh-cut parsley, cracked pepper and side with lemon wedges to serve.  Enjoy!
