Erwin's Vegetable Paella



My brother,who is a vegetarian asked me for suggestions for him to make New Year's. I sent him this recipe although I had never tried it. He made it and said it was wonderful, he is a wonderful cook and although I am not a vegetarian,he and I have similar tastes.
My brother said he used fresh artichokes, steamed them himself just till tender,then added to the dish,the original recipe used frozen artichokes. He used frozen green peas.
