Vegetarian Fat-free Paella

2 c Brown long grain rice
5 c Vegetable broth
1 lg Onion; coarsely chopped
1 pk (12-oz) Italian style tofu sausage (I use Lean & Lucious) cut into 1 inch pieces
1/3 lb Fresh green beans; or so, washed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cn (16-oz) artichoke hearts; packed in water; not oil!!
1 cn (16-oz) garbanzo beans (chick peas) or equivilent home cooked
1 Red or green bell pepper; cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 lb Small button mushrooms; cleaned; left whole (cut large ones in half)
1/2 c Sun dried tomatoes; snipped into 1 inch piecces -or-
1 -(up to) 2 Fresh tomatoes; cut into wedges
1 pn Saffron threads (optional)
1 ts Dried marjoram or oregano


Saute the onion and tofu sausage in a non stick skillet until onion is soft and sausage in browning. Put all ingredients into a large casserole or dutch oven, cover and bake for about 1 1/2 hour at 350. Check after one hour to be sure there is enough liquid. If you prefer, you can cook this on the top of the stove as well. As always, feel free to personalize this to suit your taste.
