Vegetarian Paella
August 22nd, 2007 by teragram

I don’t know how to pronounce it, but I know it tastes good!

Feeds: 2 (actually, the amounts below are what I’m going to make next time, what I made today wasn’t enough)

1 yellow pepper
1 courgette
1 onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 handful of mangetout
(all chopped as you like them)
Olive oil for frying
1 and 1/2 cups of brown rice
1 vegetable stock cube
a little salt
4 cups of hot water

Fry the onions and garlic until they smell great
Add the courgette
Sprinkle with some salt (this really improves the taste of the courgette)
Fry up for a couple of minutes
Add the hot water to the stock cube and mix well
Add the pepper and mangetout and fry up a bit
Add the stock
Add the rice
Boil till the rice is cooked and the water’s gone (should hopefully happen at the same time)
If you can, let the stock/starch stuff at the bottom caramelise a little
Leave to stand for 5 minutes

    If it is the Spanish dish Paella, it is pronounce Pie-ell-a.
    Myself and Cat tried Paella when we were in Madrid. It was delicious.

    it is NOT prononuced Pie-ell-a, it is pronounced pah-eh-ya.

    The only people who pronounce it pie-ell-a are Brits. For some reason, they insist on saying ee-bee-tha, as if they are from Bar-tha-lone-a, but can’t say Pah-ey-ah. go figure.
