Family paella
This rice dish is an easy version of the Spanish classic.

300g Uncle Ben's Basmati Rice

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

800ml chicken stock

50ml white wine

1 red pepper

150g cooked king prawns

200g spicy chorizo sausage, cut into thick slices

100g frozen peas

1 tbsp tomato puree

2 lemons

1 bunch parsley

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium to high heat. Add the onion, garlic, pepper and chorizo and cook for 5 minutes. Add the rice and the wine. Once the wine is evaporated, stir in the tomato puree and the stock. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to a simmer. Cook over low heat for about 15 minutes until rice is almost tender but there is still liquid in the pan.

Then, stir the king prawns and the peas into the pan. Cook until the prawns are cooked through and the rice is tender. Add the juice of one lemon, scatter with chopped parsley and serve with a lemon wedge.
