Ingredients (serves 4)
Low calorie cooking spray
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
A large pinch of saffron threads
¼ tsp turmeric
900ml chicken stock
1 tbsp smoked paprika
225g dried paella rice
500g mixed seafood – mussels, squid and prawns (you could use chicken if you want)
200g roasted red peppers in brine from a jar, drained and roughly chopped
200g asparagus tips, halved length ways
100g frozen or fresh peas
2 large carrots, peeled and finely cubed
200g runner beans, cut into small pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
A handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Lemon wedges, to serve
Place a paella pan or large frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a medium-low heat and stir-fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until softened.
Stir the saffron threads and turmeric into the chicken stock, then add the stock to the pan and stir in the smoked paprika. Bring to a simmer, then add the paella rice. Stir once, then cover and leave to simmer gently for 15-20 minutes.
Add the seafood, roasted red peppers, asparagus, peas, carrots and runner beans. Cook for a further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the rice is soft but not mushy, the vegetables are tender and the seafood is warmed through. Season well and stir in the parsley.
Serve in shallow bowls with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
