"This is a twist on a Spanish-favorite. Use seitan, tofu, or tempeh to add a protein element. I substituted turmeric for the traditional saffron to cut costs."

This turned out great! Had no green pepper so added celery, and also Seitan BallPark Dogs (homemade) for protein :-D yumtastic!

Made it exactly according to the recipe. My daughter is a vegan and she raved about it. I am not a vegan but will be having this many times. Thanks!

My family and friends all loved it despite not being vegans. Yay! Made it twice and huge hit!

Made this for my vegetarian daughter and granddaughter and was very happy with the outcome. It was easy to prepare and quite tasty.
