Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Bunch green onions, whites portion only, smashed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 2 cups parboiled (long grain) rice
  • 4 cups water
  • Kosher salt

Directions

In a pot, melt the butter over medium heat, add the green onion whites, and garlic, and sweat until tender. Add in the saffron threads, and stir. Stir in the rice, ensuring the grains are well coated with the saffron-butter mixture. Pour in the water, and stir to combine.
