Simple Paella
Serves: 2
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced.
  • 1 TB oil
  • ½ cup whole (short) grain rice
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: splash of lemon juice
  1. Heat pan to medium high. Add oil, onion, and garlic. Stir and cook briefly. Add rice. Stir to coat and cook for a couple minutes until beginning to be translucent. Add tomatoes. Cook until pan begins to dry, approximately 8 minutes. Add stock. Reduce heat to medium low. (It should still be bubbling.) Continue to cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
  2. It should be relatively "dry" and slightly caramelized on the bottom.
