½ tsp. – Tabasco
2 tsp. – Worcestershire sauce
Zest and juice of one orange
Zest and juice of one lemon
1)Stir the saffron into the hot chicken stock and set aside for 30 minutes for the flavor to steep into the stock. Place a stainless steel pot on the stove. Pour in olive oil, garlic, carrots, and the leeks. Turn on medium high heat and sweat the vegetables until soft.
2)Add the stock, spices and the juices and bring to a slight simmer.  Cook 5 minutes and turn off stove.  Keep hot.
