Saffron Rice

This basic (but delicious) saffron rice recipe can be served as a side dish or used to stuff poultry (we put it in Cornish game hens).

Roasted Saffron Rice
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp Shallot, minced
  • 1/4g High Quality Saffron Threads or Powder
  • 1 cup Long Grain Rice
  • 3 1/2 +1/3 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt

DIRECTIONS

1

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the shallot and sweat until translucent.
2

Add the saffron and the rice. Toast the rice, while stirring, until it smells nutty.
3

Add the salt and the chicken stock. Bring to a simmer.
4

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the rice is cooked through.
5

Serve hot, or (if using as a stuffing) move the rice to a separate bowl or pan to cool.
