EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Traditional paella is a Spanish dish loaded with seafood, vegetables, rice and saffron seasoning. In some regions, it's cooked outside in a large flat pan, also called a paella.

Save time cutting broccoli! Look for the packages of broccoli flowerets available in the produce section of your grocery store.

A traditional paella flavoring (and expensive spice), saffron is the hand-picked stigma from a tiny purple crocus flower. It takes more than 14,000 of these little threads to produce one ounce of saffron!

Turmeric does the trick as a saffron substitute because it's moderately priced and generally available in most supermarkets. Both spices are pungent, aromatic and used to add flavor and color to foods.
