What is saffron?
Saffron is actually the red stigma of a crocus flower and is the most expensive of spices. Use just a pinch of saffron for unmistakable color, aroma, and flavor.
Combine broth and saffron; let steep 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium. Stir in rice and garlic; cook, until fragrant, 1 minute.
