Two Paella Recipes

Paella is a Spanish rice dish that contains a mixture of ingredients which depending on the recipe might contain meat, seafood and vegetables. The most important ingredient in paella (other the rice and olive oil) is saffron, the world's most expensive spice which is also used in Middle-eastern and Indian cooking. Paella is traditionally cooked in a wide flat-bottomed steel pan over an open flame. A wood fire is most authentic, but a wide propane burner works well too.

Paella is thought to have originated in Albufera region in Valencia Spain and may date back to Moorish times. Unlike the paella found in most restaurants around the world, paella from Valencia typically does not include seafood. Below are two recipes, one a traditional Valencian version and the other is a more widely known seafood version. Paella is very adaptable and many different sorts of meats, seafood and vegetables can be used, one can even make completely vegetarian paella. Be creative! It is a dish that if favored for spring or summer picnics in Spain. Enjoy!
Paella Valencia


Ingredients:
  • 3 leveled cups bomba or calasparra rice (short to medium-grain white rice)
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup olive oil (Spanish is best)
  • 1 pound chicken - cut into small pieces
  • 1 pound rabbit - cut into small pieces (or double chicken)
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • 3/4 pound green flat beans - stem ends cut off, and cut into 1.5 inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound shelled tavella beans - shelled.
  • 1/2 pound garrofó beans - similar to flat whitebutter beans
  • ½ teaspoon saffron
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Salt
Preparation:
  1. Heat the olive oil in a paella pan and brown the chicken and rabbit pieces until they become golden.
  2. Add the green beans, the garrofó and the tavella beans, and stir all ingredients. Sofry or caramelize-fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the grated tomato and cook at least 5 minutes.
  4. Add the bomba rice and stir briefly. Distribute the rice uniformly over the paella pan bottom. At this point the fire should be at its strongest or the heat source high.
  5. Immediately add the sweet paprika and the saffron. Add the boiling chicken broth and salt to taste. From now on, you shouldn't stir the paella any more. Cook for 16-18 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from heat, let it rest 5 minutes and then enjoy!
