Raw Veggie Paella

 Veggie Paella

I used to make a lot of dishes with Arborio rice, like risotto, or paella.  There was just something so delicious and comforting about it when paired with the right ingredients. So satisfying and hearty.  I have found a grain free way to create rice dishes that I enjoy just as much using celeriac instead of the starchy rice.  The texture is slightly different, but I don't mind.  It lends itself well to whichever flavor I pair it with and I always finish it off feeling satisfied and happy not heavy.

Veggie Paella 2

Last week, I decided to make a veggie paella, since I had lots of brightly colored veggies on hand.  I added in the typical tomatoes and peppers, some mushrooms for meatiness, and edamame in place of the usual peas for a bit of protein.  It was delicious!  I ate the entire recipe in one sitting myself, but I think this could easily be shared if you do not have the monstrous appetite that I do.  The best part about it is it is quick to make, took me about 15 minutes, so you have more time to relax and enjoy dinner!
