Cooking up a taste of Spain


There’s a Spanish flavour to this week’s recipe. This seafood paella uses prawns and is ready to dish up in just 45 minutes. It will serve four people...


1 onion; roughly chopped

1 red pepper; cored, deseeded, cut into chunks

2 garlic cloves; chopped

400g can The Co-operative chopped tomatoes

1 tsp tumeric

300g The Co-operative easy cook long grain rice

1 litre hot vegetable stock; made with 3 stock cubes

200g The Co-operative cooked and peeled prawns

150g The Co-operative Truly Irresistible British garden frozen peas

1 lemon, cut into wedges


Put the onion and pepper in a large frying pan with 150ml water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins until the onion is soft and almost all the water absorbed.

Stir in the garlic, tomatoes and turmeric and cook for 2 mins. Add the rice and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins.

Scatter the prawns and peas over and cook for 5-6 mins, stirring occasionally until stock has been absorbed and rice is tender. Serve with lemon wedges.
