Paella is a typical Spanish dish that originated in Valencia 🇪🇸. It is known for its vibrant colors and rich flavor.

All you need are fresh vegetables 🍅, herbs 🌿 and the right spice mix 😉.
For this vegan paella recipe you will need the following ingredients:
Now you are ready to start preparing your vegan paella! Just follow these steps and enjoy the process 🥘.
First you should wash all your vegetables and cut them into equal pieces. Finely chop the onion and garlic. Make sure everything is ready before you start cooking, as cooking a paella can be quite fast 💨.
Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic until translucent. Then add the rest of the vegetables and fry for another 5 minutes 🌶️.
Now you can add the rice to the pan. Fry it for a few minutes until it becomes a little transparent. This is where the true flavor of the paella begins to unfold 🍚!
Now add the spices and stir everything well. Then pour the vegetable broth into the pan and let everything simmer on medium heat for about 20 minutes. During this time you can garnish with some fresh thyme and rosemary 🌿.
After the rice has absorbed all the flavor and the liquid has evaporated, your vegan paella is ready to serve 🍽️. Ideally, Spanish paella is served straight from the pan. Don't forget to garnish the dish with some fresh herbs and maybe add a squeeze of lemon 🍋. Enjoy your meal!
Now you see that it doesn't take a magic formula to make a delicious vegan paella. With the right ingredients and a little creativity, you can transform a traditional Spanish dish into a friendly and nutritious meal. Don't forget to tell us how you succeeded!
