I am a vegetarian but I don't like missing out on good food just because somebody says it should contain meat or fish, so I adapt them and leave out the meat/fish and any stock/derivatives from them that are usually put into these recipes. Sometimes I cheat a bit if I'm in a rush or if it doesn't make any difference to the end result, as you will see below, where I use ready bought seasoning, but I never compromise on flavour as if I'm using precious calories to eat something, I have to enjoy it - otherwise I risk snacking to make up for it (lol).
I loved this meal. It's so simple to make, we used paella rice, threw whatever veg we could find in there (which ended up being: green beans, sweetcorn, peas, peppers, onion, tenderstem broccoli, and tomatoes) with it, with a pack of paella spices (from Tesco, as we were in a rush because it's quite expensive to do it this way, otherwise) and cooked as you would any other paella, just without a meat and/or fish stage.
I also added lemon wedges to steam with it for a few minutes with it at the end - the lemon flavour goes SO well with this, and steaming it makes it really juicy so that it gives out its flavour easily.
Easy peasy, very tasty and healthy too - what do you think? x
