Easy Saffron Rice

If you're new to saffron or just need a quick and easy way to jazz up your weekday meals, this delicious saffron rice recipe is perfect for you!

Ingredients

Preparation

  • 1 large pinch saffron
  • 11/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 cup basmati rice (Lotus Foods is our favorite)
  • 1 tsp salt 
Steep saffron in boiling chicken stock, about 10 minutes. In medium-sized pot, melt butter over high-heat. Stir in rice and salt. Cook until rice is opaque and absorbs butter, stirring constantly (do not brown rice). 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.
