WEDNESDAY 8TH APRIL – Kid-Friendly PAELLA

Kid Friendly Paella 

My one-pot cheats paella is great to make for a family dinner! This is a great recipe to prepare the ingredients for the kids so they can spend their time getting bits ready and stirring the frying pan – you’ll want to be on hand to supervise them while cooking.

You choose the main ingredient to make it a:

  • Shellfish Paella (e.g prawns or bag frozen mixed seafood) or
  • Meat Paella (diced chicken breast, I’ll be using sliced pork belly) or
  • Vegetarian Paella (broccoli/cauliflower florets)

SERVES 4 

Serving Suggestion:

  • This one is great on it’s own!

What you need:

  • Large frying pan with lid or foil to cover if you don’t have a lid
  • Chopping board

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • Splash olive oil
  • 1 mug of basmati rice
  • 1 stock cube (chicken or veg)
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas or any other diced veg
  • 500g main ingredient – (see note above; seafood or vegetarian or meat paella)
  • Optional – 1 tbsp smoked paprika (it really needs this or but a pre-made seasoning mix)
  • Optional – Pinch turmeric
  • Optional – handful chopped fresh herbs (parsley or coriander)
