Paella is a Spanish dish. Traditionally, paella is cooked in a paellera, a large shallow frying pan, over an open fire, fueled by orange and pine branches. We’ve made a reinvented mussel paella on the stove, which is just as tasty as the Spanish version.

Ingredients Needed for Mussel Paella

    1 onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
    ½ cup rice
    1 ½ cups of vegetable stock

    ½ teaspoon chopped rosemary leaves

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet, stir and cook the onion until soft and translucent.
  2. Add the rice and stir.
  3. Add 1 cup (250 ml) of vegetable stock, stir, and cook further. When the liquid starts simmering, cover the skillet. Simmer for 10 minutes, on low heat.
  4. Remove the lid, add the mussels, and stir. If necessary, add the remaining vegetable stock. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 more minutes.
  5. When the time’s up, remove the lid, add the turmeric, rosemary, heavy cream, and chili slices. Mix to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Cook until the rice is well done and absorbs most of the liquid.
