  6. Now - replace the Paella Pan on a high heat - add the peas and beans half of the stock and give a final stir.
  7. Let the liquid reduce (don't stir it again)  and add the rest of the stock.
  8. Cook until the rice has absorbed 90% of the liquid and then remove from the heat.
  9. Cover the Pan with a clean cloth and leave for ten minutes or so, until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.
  10. Now - chop some parsley and sprinkle liberally on top of your Paella.
