Vegetable Medley Paella

Vegetable Medley Paella

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Two shortcut ingredients——instant rice and frozen veggies——turn an all-day event into a quick weeknight entrée. Any frozen vegetable medley works well in this paella.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 spicy soy sausages (7 oz. total), thickly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped (about 4 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbs. paprika
  • 1 ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 16-oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • ¾ cup roasted red peppers from jar, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups instant brown rice
  • ½ cup dry white wine

1. Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Add sausages; cook 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Add onion, garlic, paprika, and Italian seasoning; sauté 2 minutes, until onion softens.

2. Add vegetables and roasted peppers, and cook 2 minutes, or until vegetables begin to thaw. Stir in rice.

3. Add wine and 1¼ cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cover, and cook 10 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.

I'm going to try and cook this for myself for Christmas! I'm a new vegetarian and also new to cooking. This dish would be perfect for me to start.

Also, the alcohol cooks out (and wine is gluten-free).. Or you could use a little bit of vinegar + water/veg stock..

I am not only a vegetarian, but I do not use any alcoholic drink. I am interested in today's recipe, Vegetarian Medley Paella, but it uses dry white wine. What would you suggest I might use instead that would work o.k. with it? Thanks. Esther Hart - 2009-12-02 11:51:23

Vegetable stock, apple juice, or carrot juice are great substitutes for white wine.
