Saffron Rice
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
6 ingredients
4-6 servings
Everyone loves this, even my mother, who claimed to not like rice. I grow Saffron, so I garnish the rice with a Saffron Crocus flower when I serve it. I use this as a side dish with Shrimp Creole (I recommend Shrimp Creole, along with a Spinach salad, and Lemon Meringue Pie). I adapted this from a 1973 Southern Living, Our Best Recipes, cookbook.
