Valencian rice is one of those recipes which has many variations; it all depends on the taste of the person who prepares it. I would say that this rice is something similar to rice with chicken, but other ingredients such as white wine, shrimp, and other meats that can add to this rice.
I wanted to prepare it because my grandmother used to make it for us on special occasions, I did not see the time for these dates to arrive to enjoy this delicious rice, because it is in the list of my favorites.
I remember that I prepared it with a lot of love for us, and every time I did it, I was one of the girls who didn’t leave the kitchen, because I loved to see how she prepared and it was a wonderful delicacy.
That is why I have decided to bring you this recipe of Valencian rice, because I know it by heart, and I want you to enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed it. In our recipe, the ingredients are fundamental, because I do not want to make this recipe something expensive, but something that you can prepare at home and that is within reach of your pockets. Although if you wish you can add shrimp, olives, sausages, squid, artichokes, among others, everything is a matter of taste.
