Cookalong with Frida and Ciana Sunday night. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. This time we made Paella, the National dish of Spain. We made Vegetarian Paella. It came out wonderful in flavors. Saffron and smoked paprika are the main spices in this dish. We used the vegetables we had, onions, garlic, carrots, zucchini, green peas, bell peppers, cabbage, chickpeas, tomatoes, broccoli. We also added mushrooms and vegetable broth. We did not have a Paella pan so we prepared all in the cast iron pan on the stove top and then switched to an oven pan and added the rice and finished it off in the oven. It tasted wonderful.
