Directions

For the vegetable stock:

Add enough water to cover all vegetables in the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5-7 minutes.

For the sofrito:

Place all ingredients into a sauté pan and cook slowly until it has cooked down. It should begin to blend together almost forming a paste.

For the topping:

Blanch all vegetables in salted boiling water, set aside.

For the rice:

Strain the vegetable stock and add sofrito to make the rice. Using 2 ounces of long grain rice and 4 ounces paella stock per single serving, cook for 15-17 minutes at 375 degrees inside the oven. When cooked, let the paella rest for 5 minutes before serving. To finish the dish, cover with the blanched vegetables.
