Happy new year lovely vegans!

I've been given a sack of paella rice from santa and was wondering if any of you knew a fantastic thing I might do with it....

happy new year to you too :)
do you know what..i don't have a recipe or anything..but i bet if you just bung in a load of veg and some paprika and stuf..i bet it'll be ace.
seems like you've got enough of the stuff to be able to do a little experimenting with.
bet someone else will have a snazzy recipe..did you have a peek around the recipe threads?
