Vegetable Paella (Paella de la Huerta)

The original Paella dish came about as a way of cooking rice with vegetables from the garden, perhaps supplemented by bits of chicken or wild rabbit. This recipe is close to the original using only vegetables. A perfect summer dish easily prepared when season’s bounty is plentiful.
