Although I love Mahatma brand yellow rice, I thought it was high time to make my own saffron rice. I absolutely love saffron rice and use it in many dishes I prepare. Saffron threads aren't cheap, but 1/4 teaspoon is all that is needed.


1 cup jasmine rice

1 3/4 cups chicken flavored vegetable broth (I use Better Than Bouillon brand)

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp saffron threads

Pinch of cayenne pepper

2 tsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp vegan fish sauce (or 1/4 tsp salt)


1. Bring broth and all ingredients except rice to a boil.

2. Stir in rice, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes.

3. Fluff and serve.
