Saffron Rice



  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup parboiled rice
  • ½ teaspoon saffron
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Hot pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups broth




  1. Heat oil and saute the onion until soft.
  2. Add rice, saffron, salt and pepper. Stir to evenly colour the rice.
  3. Add broth, bring to a boil, cover and turn the heat down to low. Cook for about 30 minutes, until the rice is tender.
  4. Turn off the heat but leave the pot on the warm stove for a minute, to absorb the rest of the stock.
    Serves 4

Note: Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice. Turmeric can be substituted.
