What you need:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ medium tomatoes, grated to extract the juice (no peels)
3 large garlic cloves, minced
3 cups green beans, cut into quarters
48oz chicken broth
4 skinned, boned chicken thighs and one chicken breast cut into pieces
3 cups uncooked Arroz Bomba rice (the true Spaniards say 2 handfuls for each person you’re serving)
1 teaspoon saffron threads (we used a saffron packet instead because we didn’t have saffron)
2 sprigs of Rosemary
How to do it:
1. To prepare paella, make a sofrito (stir fry) using the olive oil, tomato juice and garlic in a large paella pan. Once mixture is heated, remove from heat and pour out into a small bowl.
This is a fun and delicious dish to end the year on a high! Hope everyone has a great last day of 2014!
