Saffron Rice

  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
  2. 3 tablespoons boiling water
  3. 4 cups cold water
  4. 2 cups (14 ounces) basmati rice
  1. In a small heatproof bowl, crumble the saffron into the boiling water. In a large saucepan, combine the cold water with the rice and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 17 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.
