Today, this recipe fits perfectly with vegetarian and vegan diets, allowing you to enjoy a paella with 100% plant-based ingredients without sacrificing the traditional flavor.

Ingredients for vegan vegetable paella

To prepare an authentic vegan vegetable paella, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Water
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Rice (preferably bomba rice)
  • Salmorreta (a mix of garlic, ñoras, and tomato)
  • Mild garlic
  • Red bell pepper
  • Artichokes
  • Cooked chickpeas
  • Cauliflower

Step-by-step guide to cooking vegan paella

  1. Prepare the ingredients: Clean and cut all the vegetables. Peel and chop the mild garlic, slice the red bell pepper into strips, clean the artichokes, and cut the cauliflower into small florets.
  2. Make the salmorreta: If you don’t have prepared salmorreta, you can make it easily by sautéing garlic, ñoras (dried peppers), and grated tomato in a pan with olive oil. Then, blend everything until you get a paste.
  3. Sauté the vegetables: In a paella pan, heat some olive oil and add the mild garlic. When it turns golden, add the red bell pepper, artichokes, and cauliflower. Sauté for a few minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  4. Add the chickpeas: Incorporate the cooked chickpeas and stir well to combine with the other vegetables.
  5. Add the rice: Add the rice to the paella pan and sauté it for a couple of minutes along with the vegetables. This will help the rice absorb the flavors.
  6. Mix in the salmorreta: Add the salmorreta to the pan and stir well to mix it with the rice and vegetables.
  7. Add water: Pour water into the pan (approximately double the amount of rice) and add salt to taste. Stir everything once more and let it cook over medium-high heat.
  8. final cooking: Cook the paella for about 20 minutes, without stirring, so the rice absorbs all the liquid. If necessary, you can add more hot water during cooking.
  9. let it rest: Once the rice is cooked and has absorbed all the liquid, remove the paella pan from the heat and let the paella rest for a few minutes before serving.
