  • Summary

    There are few dishes as flavor-packed, comforting, and vibrant as paella. This vegan mushroom paella packs a rich punch of flavor thanks to a sofrito base, hearty mushrooms, and artichoke hearts. It's cooked to perfection with lots of tender rice at the center of the skillet and that delectable golden-brown paella crust at the edges.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 pounds button or cremini mushrooms, baby bella, or a mix of both, stemmed and left whole or quartered (depending on size)
    • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, reconstituted and drained (optional)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnishing
    • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and julienned
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
    • 1 medium red onion, julienned (about 2 cups)
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, depending on desired smokiness
    • 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
    • 2 cups uncooked Arborio rice
    • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
    • 1 cup filtered water
