Basque Vegetable Rice

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (64 votes)

Zucchini, onion, tomatoes and bell peppers stud this paella-inspired rice dish. You may add other vegetables, such as mushrooms and peas, or if you like something heartier, some slightly spicy Italian sausage is a good choice.

3 minor changes and it is perfect!

I swap oregano for the thyme. Use chipoltle peppers in adobo instead of the dried peppers. Finally, prepare the rice separately, using the vegetable broth in place of water (once the vegetables are cooked just stir in the already-cooked rice)--YUM!

I've made this dish several times and I love it! It's perfect because I'm a vegetarian and can eat it as is, my omni husband adds sausage and he loves it too. Definitely squeeze lemon on it right before serving, it adds another layer of flavor to the dish. Great for leftovers!

I love this dish and have made it several times. I agree with one reviewer that it can be a bit bland, especially if you use reduced sodium broth. Instead of adding more salt, however, I throw in capers and/or finely chopped olives. So good, and the perfect work lunch!!!

I omitted the thyme, substituted peppers in adobo sauce for the dried peppers and used a spanish rice mix and really liked this recipe. I made it once as listed and found it a bit bland but loved it with the substitutions.
