One Pan Paella

A great one-pan dinner for busy week nights, or a delicious taste of summer for a weekend evening meal, this paella is easy, tasty and leaves minimal washing up – win win!

Serves: 2-3


3 cups chicken stock

80g chorizo, sliced

165g jumbo prawns

1 onion

1/2 cup basmati rice

1 carrot

1/3 cauliflower

1/2 red pepper

Handful of peas

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp tumeric

Juice of 1/2 lemon




  • Chop the chorizo, onion, carrots, cauliflower and red pepper into small chunks.
  • In a frying pan, fry the chorizo and onion together until the fat from the chorizo starts softening the onion.
  • Add in the dry rice and stir through the chorizo and onion, coating the rice.
  • Add in the chicken stock and stir.
  • Add the chopped veg and spices into the pan, stir and then cover the pan with a lid to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes take off the lid and add in the peas and prawns and stir through. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until the rice is soft.
  • Split between two dishes and top with chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice to serve.
