Vegan Paella

We all have that one favourite meal from before we went vegan and paella is definitely mine

It combines my favourite things, carbs, vegetables and lots of flavour. That's why I decided to make a vegan friendly version so I could still enjoy the beauty that is paella

This was my first time making a vegan paella and it turned out surprisingly well! The only thing I would have changed is to not have added as much chopped tomatoes, so i've adjusted the recipe accordingly.

Serves 2


  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 Of a tin of chopped tomatoes - try to use as little juice as you can 
  • 1 White onion diced,
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 Red pepper diced,
  • 3/4 Mushrooms, rough chopped
  • A generous handful of frozen peas
  • 1/2 Tablespoons of turmeric
  • 1/2 Tablespoons of paprika
  • 1 Vegetable oxo cube
  • 3/4 Handfuls of Arborio Rice


  • Get a wok and add some olive oil
  • Put in your peppers, mushrooms and onion
  • Cook until softened
  • Add your chopped tomatoes, parsley and paprika
  • Cook for a few minutes
  • Dissolve your vegetable cube into 350ml of cold water
  • Add to the wok, with the turmeric and rice
  • Bring to boil and then simmer for 20 minutes
  • Add your peas and cook for a further 10 minutes
  • Serve and enjoy!
