READY IN: 50mins




  • Gently warm the stock with the saffron in a small saucepan while you proceed with the recipe.
  • Put butter in a large deep skillet that can later be covered and turn the heat to medium.
  • Add the onion and a large pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion turns translucent.
  • Add the rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is glossy and begins to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the warm stock and stir. Bring to a boil, cook for 1 or 2 minutes, then reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Cook for 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Turn the heat to the absolute minimum (if you have an electric stove turn off the heat) and let rest another 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Stir in parsley and lemon juice.
