Serves: 6.

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups long grain rice
4 cups chicken broth
Pinch of saffron strands


1. Add the saffron to the chicken broth and let it steep for 1 hour.

2. Melt the butter over medium-low heat in a medium sauce pan. Add the onion, red pepper, and salt. Sweat the onions and peppers until aromatic, stirring constantly.

3. Add the rice to the pan and stir to coat. Continue stirring until the rice smells nutty. Add the saffron chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the temperature to a medium low heat, stir the rice and then cover pan with a lid.

4. Cook the rice for 15 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and allow it to rest for 10 minutes without removing the cover. Remove lid from the pan and turn rice out into a serving bowl.
