Paella is super flavorful, crowd-pleasing, and an absolute stunner on the table. We asked our friends at The Culinistas, a Manhattan-based personal chef service, to put together a veggie-centric paella party menu for us. (They’ve also helped us in the past with meal-prep strategies.) As the kids say, they understood the assignment. If the charred poblano and mushroom paella doesn’t win you over, the tart honey, lemon, and hibiscus cocktail will.
These herby beans have a lot going for them, but it’s the technique that we’ll be hanging on to and riffing on from here on out. Some sautéed aromatics along with fresh herbs, spices, and lemon juice can turn humble beans (even frozen or canned) into something you’ll be excited to eat.
