Just a squeeeze of Taste #5 Bomba and Original Umami pastes give this dish the delicious #Taste5twist flavor boost! Paella is considered the national dish of Spain with ancient roots from the east coast of Spain near the city of Valencia.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup drained sliced jarred pimientos, chopped (one 4-ounce jar)
1 tomato, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoon Taste#5 Bomba! XXX Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon Taste#5 Original Umami Bomb Paste
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 cups rice, preferably medium-grain such as arborio
3 cups stock (vegetable or chicken)
1 cup water
1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 cup frozen peas
1 6 1/2 ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and sliced
2 cups cannellini beans or garbanzo beans - drained and rinsed
1 small can black olives, sliced
Pour oil in to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes until softened and translucent. Add tomato, pimientos, and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
Stir in the pastes, salt, turmeric, and rice. Add the chicken broth, water, and parsley and turn heat up to high until it comes to a boil. Reduce to medium heat and continue to cook for 7 - 10 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
Add the green beans, peas, artichokes, black olives and beans. Reduce to low heat, cover, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes before serving.
