Vegan Paella contains many Mediterranean vegetables; zucchini, onion, garlic, and bell pepper. All are slowly cooked in a simple veggie broth, wine and smokey paprika (Pimentón de la Vera) for a sunny main dish! Paella is a great dish; you can make it with whatever you feel like; seafood, meat, fish, veggies, etc. The base always stays the same; the Sofrito, which is; frying the onion and garlic with the pulp of tomato in olive oil. You let it reduce until pasty, and voila the base of all paellas! Then grill a topping in the pan first, and the rest will boil in the rice filled with a yummy broth. For this Vegan Paella version, we’ll grill the zucchini first to make it as a topping. I’ve done the zucchini separately because it would become soft and unpleasant in the broth. This way (grilling it at first), you’ll get the crunch and full flavour…
