Sea vegetables add the taste of the sea to this vegetarian paella, as well as a wealth of nutrients. If desired, use brown arborio rice, keeping in mind that this may extend the cooking time by about 20 minutes.
- Soak arame in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Heat oil in a paella pan or large heavy-bottomed sauté pan. Add onion, leeks, tomatoes and greens. Sauté 7 minutes. If using spinach, save to add later. Mix in rice and cook another 5 minutes.
- Add Paella Picada, stock, vermouth, remaining vegetables (including spinach if using) and tofu. Reduce to a simmer and let cook approximately 15 minutes, until rice is done but still slightly chewy. Don't stir as it cooks. Allow to sit 10 minutes before serving.
