In a saucepan, combine 4 cups water and saffron, and place over medium heat. When the liquid comes to a simmer, remove from heat but keep warm.
While you wait for the water to heat, prepare your mise en place: Pick thyme and parsley leaves, and add the stems to the saffron water; chop and combine parsley and thyme leaves. Trim bottom 1/2-inch from broccolini stems, and discard. Peel and mince shallots.
On a heavy baking pan, pile the broccolini. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon cooking oil, season with 1/2 teaspoon PeachDish salt, and toss to coat. Spread out broccolini in a single layer. Place in oven and bake 12-13 minutes, or until broccolini is lightly browned and tender.
While broccolini is roasting, start the risotto: Heat a sauté pan over medium heat, and add remaining 2 teaspoons cooking oil. Add shallot. Cook while stirring 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to become translucent. Add rice, and stir to combine. Add cooking wine, and cook briefly while stirring.
Add 1/4 cup saffron-herb broth (you can remove the herb stems, or just avoid adding them to the risotto), and cook while stirring vigorously until liquid is almost fully absorbed. Repeat until you’ve used all the broth and the rice is tender but still firm (“al dente”). If, after adding all the broth, you’d like the rice more cooked add a bit of warm water, and cook until it is absorbed.
Remove from heat, and vigorously stir in butter, Parmesan and herbs. Taste, and adjust seasoning as desired with PeachDish Salt.
The finished dish should be a similar consistency to firm rice pudding. If it is too stiff, stir in a little warm water. If risotto is too cool or too thin, return pan briefly to medium heat, and stir. Divide risotto between 2 plates or bowls. Serve immediately with broccolini on the side, and enjoy!
