Vegan Paella Recipe:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice (or any short-grain rice)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. In a large paella pan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pan and sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.
  3. Stir in the diced red and yellow bell peppers, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables soften slightly.
  4. Add the smoked paprika, turmeric, and saffron threads to the pan. Stir well to coat the vegetables with the spices.
  5. Stir in the Arborio rice, ensuring that it is evenly distributed among the vegetables and spices.
  6. Pour the vegetable broth into the pan, making sure the rice is fully submerged. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.
  7. Cover the pan and let the rice simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  8. Once the rice is cooked, stir in the frozen peas and artichoke hearts. Cook for an additional 5 minutes until the peas are heated through.
  9. Season the paella with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  10. Garnish the paella with fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the dish.
