paella for 8

paella for 8
Originally uploaded by bothenook.
we invited friends over for dinner this weekend. all were either big fans or at least familiar with paella.
This is the same basic recipe i used on my Paella for 4. the major differences are as follows:
  • used an 8 serving paella pan from the Spanish Table in bezerkly.
  • i used the weber bbq grill instead of the stove. this was both easier and harder. once i added all of the ingredients, i just walked away for 30 minutes.
  • i reconstituted about 1/2 cup of dried garbonzo beans to add to the mix. i revived them with a soak overnight, and then brought them just to a boil. then i turned off the head, added the juice of 1/2 a lemon to the water, and let them cool for a couple hours before use.
  • i found and used a loose spanish chorizo sausage, so i mixed that with the spanish stick chorizo i had already.
  • i left out the tomato

paella is easy to make. and it's easy to eat.
