  1. Begin by grating a medium onion into a bowl and roughly chopping 1/2 a cleaned leek.
  2. In a large pan add 2 Tbsp butter and turn heat to medium high.
  3. Once the butter begins to melt, add the onion and leek and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Next, add the ginger, saffron, turmeric, and pepper and stir.
  5. Once everything is combined add the vegetable broth and rice.
