We are always looking for cookbooks that show how you can still prepare healthy, nourishing vegetarian food, even if you have time constraints. Enter "a modern way to cook" by Anna Jones. It's a wonderful cookbook with recipes that are creative and bursting with flavor, and this Saffron Apricots recipe is truly a standout.

From the Author: “The quickest, most exotic-tasting dessert I know, made mainly of things that sit happily in your pantry. I use orange blossom water here to add a heady fragrant taste, which I love. If you can't find it, it will work without. I serve these with a spoonful of coconut yogurt, and they are equally good on top of vanilla ice cream.”

Directions

Put the apricots into a small pan with the saffron and orange juice and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until the apricots have softened. (If using fully dried apricots, you might need to cook them a bit longer.) Scoop the apricots out and put the orange juice and saffron back on the heat to reduce a little. This will take a couple of minutes.

Allow to cool before spooning the apricots and syrup into bowls. Daintily drizzle over the orange blossom water and squeeze over a little honey. Top with yogurt and some chopped pistachios or almonds, if you like.
