For the Paella Base

  • 3 tomatoes
  • ½ red pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 sachet Paella Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper

Veggies (Add more or less to your taste)

  • 1 jar of artichokes
  • 1 zucchini small
  • 200 g oyster mushrooms
  • 1 carrots
  • ½ red pepper
  • ¼ broccoli
  • ¼ cauliflower
  • ½ cup peas

Rice and Stock

  • 500 grams bomba rice
  • 1600 ml vegetables stock


  • Roasted jarred red peppers
  • Lemon
  • Sliced Italian green peppers
  • Sliced radish


Paella base

  • Roughly chop tomatoes, red pepper, onion, and garlic.
  • Add some vegetable oil to a pan and cook for all the veggies for a couple of minutes at medium-high heat.
  • Add the spice mix, salt and pepper. Cook for 10-15 minutes until all the ingredients have softened.
  • Transfer to a blender jug and blend until you have a smooth sauce.


  • Chop all the vegetables (leave the peas as they are added at the end). Place your paella pan on a stove burner or stovetop. Heat the oil of the jarred artichokes, add the chopped vegetables and sautée for a couple of minutes.
  • When the veggies start to golden, add the paella base that we prepared before. Stir, and keep cooking for a couple of minutes. You may need to lower the heat as the sauce may splash.
  • Add the rice and combine with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Pour the vegetable broth and distribute the rice and vegetables equally around the paella pan as you should not stir or mix anymore at this point.
  • Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for about 18-20 minutes. Turn the heat off before the rice is completely cooked, as it will finish cooking before serving.
  • Add the peas, and garnishing ingredients such as roasted red peppers, lemon wedges, or chopped coriander.
  • Cover the paella with clean tea towels and leave it for about 5-7 minutes before you start serving it.
  • Serve and enjoy!
