This rice is a great base to serve with grilled veggies, or a tasty stew.

  • 6 cups water
  • 4 cups uncooked brown basmati rice
  • 1 bunch fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Persian Saffron
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • salt to taste
Bring water and rice to a boil. Add dill, parsley, saffron, turmeric and salt, and mix well. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to low, and cook with lid on, undisturbed, for 30 - 40min until rice is soft.
