LAY HO MA everyone! You’re in for a real treat! This is the ultimate one pot meal – everything is cooked in one pot and its packed with flavour! Join me in this episode and learn how to make Spanish vegan paella with saffron, sausage, and rice. Let’s begin.

1 ½ cup arborio rice
1 cup water
2 sausages (I used Field Roast brand in this episode)
3 pieces garlic
1 onion
4 cremini mushrooms
½ cup peas
½ cup minced red pepper
1 ½ cup chopped tomatoes
a pinch of saffron
1 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
couple sprigs of parsley

1. Finely chop the garlic and onion. Set aside
2. De-seed the red peppers. Then, finely chop
3. Finely chop the mushrooms
4. Slice the sausages
5. Rinse and drain the rice in cold water 2-3 times
6. Heat up a pan on medium heat. Add olive oil
7. Sauté the onion and garlic for about 3min. Season with salt and pepper
8. Add the sausage and sauté for another 2min, then add the mushrooms
9. Sauté for another 2min, then add the smoked paprika
10. Add the red pepper and chopped tomatoes. Stir around the tomatoes – use them to deglaze the pan
11. Add the rice. Season with salt and give it a stir
12. Add the frozen peas along with 1 cup water
13. Add the saffron, lemon juice, and stir
14. Bring the paella to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low. Stir the paella to release any rice sticking on the bottom of the pan. Cover, and cook for 20min
15. Garnish with fresh parsley

Thank you Wil. I love your style of cooking it’s made it so easy and delicious to change over to vegan.

Dear Wil, most of the time I cooked Zen (temple food) that doesn't take garlic & onion. So, what can I substitute for garlic & onion?

Jennifer Stokes says:

Looks great! I'm worried my rice will not cook all the way. I have shoddy luck with recipes like this, but it looks so good I'm going to give it a try.

Yes sir, I will be ingredients shopping today, to have this on deck for tomorrow. Hey REV, any recommendations on where to find that saffron? Looks outstanding, I swear I was smelling something through my tablet 😂‼️

Dan Pearson says:

Hey Will that's a great Paella version and I bet it tastes banging. Try to avoid stiring it too much once the rice and stock are in as a thin crispy browned layer on the bottom is actually desirable. Thanks again.

Gail Webb says:

Looks amazing😍
