Paella Recipe

A Spanish-inspired favourite, this one-pot paella is the perfect summer camping recipe. Just throw your ingredients into your frying pan and wait for the flavours to infuse-it doesn’t get much easier than this.

Try turning it into a chicken and chorizo paella or add in some of your favourite vegetables. You can also scale up the amounts to make a bigger batch for group dinners around the campfire.
