  • 2 small oranges
  • 2 tbs olive oil

  • 1 tsp saffron
  • 1/2 tsp cumin, ground
  • 1/2 tsp allspice

  • 500 ml beef bouillon from cube
  • 1 tbs parsley, chopped


  1. Peel and slice one orange. Squeeze juice from the other orange and set aside.

  3. Add orange pieces and drizzle with orange juice.
  4. Season with saffron, cumin, allspice, salt and pepper. Mix and cover. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
