Easy Saffron Rice

  • 1 large pinch saffron
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 tsp salt 
  1. Steep saffron in boiling chicken stock, about 10 minutes. 
  2. In medium-sized pot, melt butter over high-heat. Stir in rice and salt. 
  3. Cook until rice is opaque and absorbs butter, stirring constantly (do not brown rice). 
  4. Pour saffron-infused chicken stock over rice. Cover tightly, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for about 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
