Vegan Paella

I love Paellas. My mother-in-law makes the best seafood paella. I’m not a huge fan on seafood, but her paella is absolutely the best thing in this world in my opinion. I know what you’re thinking, that I will be sharing with you the recipe right? No, not quite. Believe me, I don’t even have the recipe and some things are just better left unknown 🙂

But, I will be sharing with you my vegan paella which is actually quite good. It’s vegetarian, so no meat, but it’s really good and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments!
