This is one of those dishes that seem to improve overnight. Reheated leftovers make a great lunch. Spicy food lovers note that this is a subtle dish, not a spicy one.

Recipe Ingredients for vegan paella

1 tbsp chopped Onions
3 clove Garlic
1/4 tbsp Saffron
1 1/2 cup Quinoa
2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cumin Seed
1 tsp Pepper, Red Or Cayenne
28 oz Organics Organic Diced Tomatoes
2 medium raw Bell Pepper Red
14 oz Beans
16 fl oz Organic Vegetable Broth
1 cup, chopped Squash, Summer, Zucchini, Includes Skin
1 cup Peas And Carrots
1 cup Cauliflower
1/5 cup Pine Nuts, Pignolia, Dried

Recipe Directions for vegan paella

  1. Put the quinoa into a large bowl. Cover with water and stir well to wash the grain. Pour off the water and then repeat the washing process. You may also put the quinoa into a fine mesh strainer and rinse thoroughly.

  2. Sauté onion and garlic in a deep non-stick skillet with a little water until soft. (I use my inconveniently-named ?chicken fryer? for this.) Add the quinoa and saffron and cook, stirring, for another 2 minutes. Add paprika, cumin, cayenne, tomatoes, peppers, beans, and 2 3/4 cups vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to very low, and cook covered for 15 minutes.

  3. After 15 minutes, check to see if more broth is needed. If it looks dry, add the remaining vegetable broth. Place the zucchini on top of the quinoa and re-cover. Cook for about 5 more minutes, until quinoa is done. Remove the cover, stir in the peas, and cook uncovered until peas are warm and all liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Arrange the artichoke hearts on the top and serve. Add salt at the table, if necessary.

  4. Makes about 6 servings.
