This is a really easy delicious sauce that you can make in 5 minutes and keep in the fridge for about a week. So it’s a  good option for food planing.

You can add it to warm pasta instantly or transfer it to a container and put it in the fridge for later use. Instead of pasta you can use it on top of quinoa, brown rice or bulgur. If  you feel like it, add roasted cauliflower,  mushrooms or broccoli to it for a more fulfilling meal. Enjoy.

How to use Saffron

How to use Saffron

healthy recipe

Hi guys

Saffron is one of my favorite spices. I think it’s unique and exotic, there are no other spice like Saffron. The smell is amazing that’s why it can be used to cover other smells like smell of egg yolk in pastry.  Saffron is used to add color and smell to main courses, desserts or drinks.

To get the most flavor out of saffron it’s better to grind the threads.  You can use a mortal&pestle or a coffee grinder to do so.

The saffron powder can be stored in an airtight food container . Every time you want to use it add a little bit of the powder to a small glass of hot water and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Then you can use it according to the recipe.
