Instructions for this Vegetarian Paella recipe

  1. Make sure the paella pan is level over the heat source.
  2. Place the paella pan over medium heat and pour in the olive oil.
  3. Sauté the asparagus for a minute or two, add some salt, and remove them from the paella pan.
  4. Put the carrot slices into the pan and stir fry for about two minutes.
  5. Next, add the finely chopped garlic and parsley and sauté until the garlic begins to take on color.
  6. Add the crushed tomato and sauté until most of the moisture from the tomato has been evaporated.
  7. If you haven’t added the saffron threads to the stock, you can add them to the pan now, mixing them immediately with the other ingredients.
  8. After that, sprinkle the paella rice into the paella pan and fry until the rice starts to look a little translucent.
  9. When the rice starts to look translucent, pour in the vegetable stock and turn up the heat.
  10. Spread the ingredients evenly across the paella pan and bring to a boil.
  11. Let the paella cook on high heat for about 8 minutes.
  12. After eight minutes, lower the heat and let the paella simmer on low heat until all the liquid has evaporated. This usually takes another about 8 minutes or so.
  13. Also, place the sauteed asparagus spears back in the paella pan. Place them neatly to create a nice presentation.
  14. When all the liquid has evaporated from the paella pan and you hear the paella starting to ‘fry’, remove the paella pan from the fire or turn off the heat.
  15. Let the paella sit for about five minutes to let it cool down a bit and allow any remaining moisture to evaporate.
