When we had our next door neighbors over for dinner last week, I decided to try out a new recipe for artichoke paella from Anna Jones’ A Modern Way to Eat. I was a little nervous about it – I have a UK copy of the book, and all of Jones’ recipe instructions are in ml and grams – I had to use my best guesses to convert the recipe over to cups. But, I was oh so pleased by how it turned out – all the flavors melded together perfectly, and it really hit the spot on such an icy cold winter day. I definitely think it’s going to become a winter staple in our house – in fact, we’ll be making it again when we have friends over next weekend!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out Anna Jones’ newest cookbook, it’s absolutely lovely! All the recipes are vegetarian, and the majority are gluten free. Jones’ paella recipe is available here.
I made a few substitutions: I used 2 cups of rice, and 4 cups of vegetable stock. I couldn’t find paella rice, so I used arborio. I also substituted a jar of roasted red peppers for the red peppers she uses.
