Saffron Rice

Share

Saffron may seem expensive, but only a little of this delectable herb is needed to make something spectacular. Basmati rice costs twice as much as ordinary rice, but its amazing aroma, flavor and texture make it worth every cent. Saffron threads and basmati rice (brown and naturally white) are available in many natural foods stores.

4 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups basmati rice
2 tsp. saffron threads (optional)

Bring water and salt to a boil. Stir in rice and saffron. Adjust to low heat, and cover. Simmer until all the water has been absorbed (about 20 minutes for white, 45 for brown). Turn off heat and let rest 5 minutes before serving on prewarmed plates.
