We have done it my friends, we made it through a long winter to glorious spring- the season of new beginnings, warmer weather, and fresh new recipes! Today I am so excited to share this Spring Vegetable Skillet Paella with you! There are so many tasty things happening here and it’s made in one skillet and in just 30 minutes! Now that’s something we can most certainly get excited about!
The recipe starts with my new favorite Calphalon Premier™ Hard-Anodized Nonstick Saute Pan. In this particular paella recipe I decided to sauté fennel, onion, radish, zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms, carrots, peas, tomatoes, and chickpeas for the most veggie-packed meal! Then you toss in medium-grain rice, vegetable broth, dry white wine and a garlicky, salted paprika parsley spice mixture. Uh, ya… yum-o! And the pan comes with a lid to allow you to cook the rice right in the pan with the sautéed veggies. Less pans = happy me! Haha. One-pot meals are totally going to be my 2021 trend.
The Calphalon Premier™ Hard-Anodized Nonstick 5-Quart Saute Pan is designed to save you time in the kitchen and deliver cooking versatility. The durable nonstick interior lets you prepare and serve your favorite meals with ease and makes cleanup quick and easy, always a hero in my kitchen! I also love the stay-cool stainless steel long handle that provides heat resistance when cooking on the stovetop.
The effortless food release in Calphalon’s new Premier™ Cookware makes cooking and serving even the most delicate food (like rice) with ease without it all sticking to the bottom of the pan and without loading up on the oil.
Another thing I love about this new Premier line of cookware from Calphalon is that they are oven safe up to 450 degrees- so you can also bake in them, or when you’re on your A game and you finish the paella early, you can keep it warm in the oven without cooking it more via stovetop.
I would bet that you don’t even miss the meat for this meal because there’s so many other amazing foods tossed into this paella, so it’s perfect for meatless Mondays or to serve to vegetarian/vegan guests when they come over. It also happens to be naturally gluten-free- so basically it’s the perfect meal! 😉
This Spring Vegetable Skillet Paella will easily serve 4-6 people, but if you’re just cooking for two, leftovers is where it’s at! Shoot, you can even keep it stored in the fridge in your covered Calphalon pan and quickly reheat it the next day for a cook-once-eat-twice type meal #winning.
I hope you enjoy this nourishing meal as much as my family and I did!
