Saffron, the world's most expensive spice, is fortunately so flavorful that you need only a tiny bit to flavor foods. Used most famously in risotto Milanese, paella and bouillabaisse, saffron adds a kind of aromatic pungency and gorgeous yellow color.
Mix into steamed basmati rice or couscous.
Preheat the oven to 250°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the pistachios and oil in a medium-size bowl and toss to combine. Add the saffron and salt and toss until the nuts are well coated.
Transfer the pistachios to the prepared sheet and arrange in a single layer. Place in the oven and cook until the nuts just begin to color, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, transfer the nuts to a paper towel to drain, and set aside to cool before serving.
