Vegan Paella is a classic Spanish dish that is typically made with
different kinds of meats and vegetables. In this recipe we still carry
the same Spanish flavor without any meat. Made with rice, broccoli,
tomatoes, bell peppers, garlic, olives, carrots, peas and green onions.

1 cup baby peas
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
12 pitted green olives, halved
sea salt & black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet or paella pan over medium heat.
