paella success!!! :)

I tend to get addicted to watching cooking shows, even though I'm a lil grossed out everytime, because almost always cooking shows make meat :( I really enjoy watching cooking techniques and getting ideas for flavor combinations. Every recipe can be the other day I caught a cooking show where they made a paella, it looked so yummy with that yellowy rice and pretty presentation. and I decided that I would experiment and see if I could make a yummy paella :)

I looked in my How to Cook Everything Vegetarian cookbook, and a found this yummy looking and simple recipe, and I had tomatoes that needed to be used up. This came together really easy and was super tasty. I didn't have any saffron, so I skipped it, but I think it would definitely be even better with the saffron in there.

I made a lil aioli to top it off (vegenaise, chopped parsley, dried herbs and pressed garlic).

I'll be making paella again soon!


  1. wow, your paella looks beautiful! the aioli sounds like the perfect touch to finish it off. yum!

  2. thanks!! i think i gotta make it again sometime soon :)
