Vegetable Paella

This version of the traditional Spanish dish is quick and simple.

11⁄2 cups          water or vegetable stock                375 mL
1⁄2 tsp               ground turmeric                                2 mL
1 tbsp               olive oil                                           15 mL
1⁄4 cup             chopped onion                                60 mL
1⁄2 cup             medium-grain rice, rinsed             125 mL
1⁄4 cup             chopped green bell pepper              60 mL
1⁄4 cup

chopped red bell pepper                 60 mL
1⁄4 cup             frozen peas                                     60 mL
1.  In a measuring cup, whisk together water and turmeric.
2.  In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until tender, about
3 minutes. Stir in rice, green pepper, red pepper, peas and stock mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
3.  Transfer to blender and purée on high speed to desired consistency.

Makes about 2 cups (500 mL)
Tip
Combining vitamin C–rich foods with iron-rich foods helps the body absorb more iron. Red peppers are rich in vitamin C, and enriched rice is a good source of iron.
