This paella is a winner at any BBQ. Easy and fun to make and the results always receive compliments from the guests. What’s not to like?

It is a very social food – traditionally eaten by everyone from the frying pan – which is the paella!

We love that you can try out different versions – with or without vegan meats. Maybe try some vegan prawns? Or vegan chorizo or even a mix of various beans…..


500g Risotto Rice or Paella Rice

1.5L Vegetable Stock

0.5 tsp Saffron

4 sausages

4 tbsp olive oil

3 chopped onions

1 red pepper

1 yellow pepper

1 green pepper

4 garlic cloves

1 tbsp paprika

10 small sweet tomatoes halved

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp pepper

1 tbsp garlic granules

2 lemons quartered

Coriander to garnish


Add olive oil to paella pan. Once oil is sizzling add onions and garlic and let cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic granules, paprika, saffron and  salt and pepper and leave for 1 minute.

Add rice and stir in until all oil and seasoning has been absorbed into rice. Pour in 500ml of the vegetable stock and stir.

Add peppers and tomatoes.

Once stock is reduced pour in another 500ml and stir. Whilst stock is reducing add sausages separately to BBQ and cook through.

Keep an eye on paella and once stock has reduced add another 500ml.

Whilst reducing remove cooked sausages and slice. Add sausages to paella and cook until edges and top start to turn golden and begin to crisp slightly.

Remove paella from BBQ and garnish with quartered lemons and coriander.

Then enjoy!
