    Vegan Paella I used real bomba rice for the recipe, which is more absorptive than other rice, so more broth is used. The ratio is 3 parts broth to 1 part rice. For this recipe, I used a 4 cup carton on broth and about 1 1/3 cups of rice. Thaw out your vegan shrimp before beginning. Begin warming broth on low/medium heat. Lightly heat saffron threads in dry skillet on low heat. In paella pan, add olive oil. -Sauté vegan chicken until desired consistency, set to side. -Sauté green beans until a little floppy (if not properly cooked, crunchiness will distract from texture of paella), set to side. Add chopped garlic, onion, and rosemary (make sure to remove leaves from stem) to heated paella pan and cook until onion begins to turn transparent. Add chopped red bell pepper to paella pan and cook until pepper begins to look cooked (usually about 5 minutes). Crumble some of your heated saffron into paella pan and into broth. Drain and add artichoke hearts to paella pan. Move around mixture and cook for about 5 minutes. Add can of diced tomatoes with liquid into paella pan. Move mixture around until well mixed. Add all dry rice to paella pan. Gently move mixture around until rice absorbs all fluid. Crumble remaining saffron into broth. Add warmed broth to paella pan, a couple ladles at a time, and move mixture around until rice absorbs all liquid. Repeat the process of adding broth to rice and allowing absorption until all broth has been used. Add vegan chicken, green beans, and vegan scallops to paella pan. Mix well. Place vegan shrimp atop completed paella. Cover paella pan with foil and place in non-heated oven allow to sit for 1-2 hours. **this is process traditional and also serves to warm the shrimp. If you don’t want to wait, sauté the shrimp separately, add at end of recipe and serve. Enjoy this vegan take on a Spanish classic :)

    I live in Virginia Beach. The only place I’ve ever found them is in the frozen section of an Asian grocery store. Never seen them anywhere else, just there. I imagine they’re available elsewhere, just not sure where.
