Spelt Pilaf with Saffron
Soak spelt in enough cold water to cover, at least 5 hours and up to overnight; drain. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until shimmering, then add onions and garlic. Saute until softened but not browned. Add spelt and saffron, stir 1 minute, and add wine.Advertisement
Lightly season pilaf with salt and pepper, then cook, stirring occasionally, until wine has almost completely evaporated, about 15 minutes. Add bay leaves and broth, then increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook at a bare simmer until spelt is cooked through, about 50 minutes. Remove bay leaves, stir in cream, and serve immediately.
