An easy and comforting one-pot weeknight dinner full of vegetables, rice, plant-based sausage, and flavor!


Vegetable Paella with Vegan Sausage

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 large fennel, finely diced

  • 400 grams Tirat Zvi Vegan Sausages, defrosted if necessary, sliced into disks

  • 1 large onion, peeled and diced

  • 2 large peppers, yellow and red, diced

  • 1 large zucchini, diced

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1 and 1/2 cups bottled or canned crushed tomatoes such as Tuscanini

  • 250 grams paella and short white rice

  • 4 cups boiling water

  • salt

  • pepper, to taste



Heat the oil in a large, wide pan on medium high heat and cook the garlic till fragrant but not browned. Add the onions and the fennel until translucent. Add the sliced sausages and brown. Then add the bell peppers and zucchini and cook for five minutes to soften. Add the paprika, salt, and pepper.


Stir in the rice and crushed tomatoes, cook for two minutes. Pour over the water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and leave to cook, without stirring, for 10 minutes. Stir and flatten and cook another 10 minutes. Add more water if needed.


Turn off the heat, cover with foil and leave to stand for five minutes. Finish with chopped fresh herbs on top. I used dill.


Note about fennel: my family still does not like the taste of fennel (I’m working on it!) but I promise if you chopped the fennel small enough and cook in the beginning with the onions you don’t taste them. If you like fennel then you can keep bigger pieces.
