You couldn't call it paella

But ricey stuff with polish sausage isn't much of a title either.  Or gloop, which was victim's suggestion.  Victim was less than impressed with dinner, and later requested tuna salad sandwiches.... tssk - but it wasn't half bad - she just has an unreasonable objection to smokey paprika flavours - and the combination of smokey Polish sausage and added paprika and saffron was too much for her taste.  Also gloop does not do justice to the loving attention to detail entailed in removing green borad beans from their grey jackets!  Anyway, usual start fried chopped onions and crushed garlic with celery until soft.  Added chopped mushrooms, artichoke hearts and sliced sausage.  Stirred in handful of paella rice, chicken stock and some paprika and a pinch of saffron with a grind of black pepper.  Added tin of chopped tomatoes and left to simmer happily away for about 15-18 minutes.  Meanwhile boiled broad beans for a couple of minutes, then drained and removed the little buggers from their jackets.  Stirred the beans into the ricey mixture and glooped into a bowl.  Jobs a good 'un.
