I love the flavor of saffron; it also gives a golden color to whatever food it is added. This recipe is for a rather elegant soup made with chicken and artichoke hearts along with saffron rice. This hearty soup is well-flavored and easy to put together. Let it cook about 1/2 day and you'll have a tasty, nourishing soup to accompany with crisp bread and a salad. Recipe from BH&G.
