What you'll need
  • 800ml vegetable stock
  • 275g short grain rice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, decored and diced
  • 1 red pepper, decored and diced
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Black pepper, ground
  • Olives
  • Fine beans
  • Lemon

In a large, non-stick frying pan, heat the oil, onions and garlic. Cook until soft - approximately 2-3 minutes.


Stir in the peas and peppers and cover before cooking for a further 2-3 minutes.


Add the tomatoes and sprinkle the paprika over. Add your stock to the pan - but be careful to stop it overflowing.


Stir the rice gently into the paella. Cook on a simmering heat until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed - this could take over 15 minutes.
