Paella is delicious, but usual recipes for it involved seafood. I love this vegetarian version of it much better. Serve this on a big platter in the middle of the table just as you would regular paella. Turmeric can be used for color if you don't have any of the expensive saffron it usually takes for the yellow tint to the rice.
