  1. In a large wide skillet or pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the tomatoes, pepper, onion, peas, artichokes, and garlic. Allow everything to cook for about 5 minutes.
  2. Now add the rice, stock, hearts of palm, all spices and herbs (not the lemon juice) to the skillet.
  3. Bring everything to a boil, before reducing the heat to medium and allowing the rice to cook for 10-15 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.
  4. Once the liquid is absorbed, either turn the heat to high to toast the bottom of the rice or go straight to allowing the paella to rest, covering the pan with foil to steam for 10 minutes.
  5. Before serving, remove the fresh rosemary sprigs and add the fresh lemon juice to the paella.
