Add the paprika and the rice, cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add the saffron plus water and about half of the stock. Stir well, add pepper and beans. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add more stock during the cooking as it becomes absorbed, stir and then leave to absorb all the flavours.
