While making this Spanish-style rice for dinner last week, I was reminded of little Spanish memories in my life, such as the semester in high school I spent learning Spanish and also the trips to Spain as a child.
But most of all, I recalled a fun little fact about me: that I’ve been asked if I was Spanish more times than I can count, possibly due to my dark hair and eyes. Isn’t that funny? I’ll take it!
Anyway, I digress. This Spanish-style vegan rice was my first foray into Spanish cuisine. It was a modest foray, as paella is very easy to do, but it was so enjoyable. And the colours. THOSE COLOURS! I loved cooking this, and it’s so delicious and healthy too.
