Rice island casserole

I got a copy of Vegan on the Cheap just after Christmas and it is one of the best books I've ever bought! There are so many easy and tasty ideas in it. This is the best thing I've made from it - rice cooked with beans, pineapple and coconut. I add extra chill and hot sauce to make it even spicier :-)

Three tomato paella

This is my three tomato paella, served with some green beans. I made it by cooking paella rice with onions and garlic in some stock with saffron added and a little passata. When nearly cooked I added halved cherry tomatoes and some sliced sundries tomatoes. It was really good the next day and I will be making it again for sure. Would be nice with some greens and parsley.
