  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro for garnish

Instructions:

In a large skillet or paella pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

Add minced garlic and sliced onion to the skillet. Sauté for two to three minutes, or until the onion turns transparent.

Add zucchini and chopped bell peppers and stir. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 more minutes.

To the skillet, add the ground cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and smoked paprika. To thoroughly mix in the spices, toss the vegetables.

When the arborio rice is fully covered with the spices and beginning to toast, add it to the skillet and cook it for two to three minutes while tossing frequently.

After adding the vegetable broth, boil the mixture. Once the rice is almost soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed, reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

Add the cherry tomatoes and chickpeas and stir. Adjust the amount of salt and pepper to suit your taste.

Once more, cover the skillet and cook for a further five to ten minutes, or until the rice is cooked through and the vegetables are soft.

When finished, take the skillet off of the burner and cover it to let the flavors settle for a few minutes.

Add some fresh cilantro or parsley as a garnish, and serve the paella hot with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing.

Instructions:

Set oven temperature to 400°F, or 200°C.

Soak the saffron threads in two teaspoons of warm water in a small bowl and set aside.

Add the quinoa and toast, stirring often, for two minutes.

Pour in the saffron mixture and vegetable broth. Add sea salt and black pepper according to taste. After bringing to a simmer, lower the heat, cover the pan, and cook the quinoa for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it is fluffy and well cooked.

Arrange the cut bell peppers, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet and cook the quinoa. Drizzle with the leftover olive oil and season with black pepper and sea salt.

Roast the vegetables in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they are soft and have a hint of caramelization.

After the quinoa is cooked, use a fork to fluff it up and then gently fold in the sliced olives and roasted veggies.

Pour the lemon juice over the paella and sprinkle the parsley that has just been chopped on top.
