"Fry" 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic and 4 sticks of celery in a pan until the onion is clear, add 1 red and 1 green pepper (diced) and 1 cup of beans, chopped into small strips. Add 1 and ½ cups of uncooked rice with 2 cups of vegetable stock. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes Add 1 440gm can of tomatoes, ¼/ cup of lemon juice, a couple of strands of saffron, some paprika (I just throw in quite a bit),1 440 gm can of artichoke hearts (I buy them in water) and some olives (I use a handful of chopped black ones, which I also buy in water.) Allow to cook on a relatively high temperature, covered for 15-20 minutes.

There should be lots of liquid at the beginning of this period, which will allow the rice to cook. Use the texture of the rice as a guide. I use a plain organic brown rice, which seems to work, although basmati rice was the type recommended in the original recipe.

Before serving, add a handful of fresh parsely and stir. Serve with wedges of lemon (and a good bottle of red wine!) Sorry for being so general, but I have adapted it quite a bit from the original recipe and this is how I made it last night. One of the key benefits is that non vegetarians don't notice the lack of m**t.
