Saffron rice (Similar to Mahatma Yellow Rice)

If you are concerned about some of the bagged/boxed items that you eat, such as MSG/GMO or artificial ingredients found in your food this recipe is worth a try.

1/4 tsp saffron ground with mortar and pestle

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup chicken broth

1/4 tsp saffron whole

1 bay leaf

1/4 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 ground yellow mustard

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 clove minced garlic

I usually use Thai jasmine rice due to it having a lower arsenic content. I have a rice cooker and use between 3-4 cups for this recipe.

Saute ground saffron in olive oil until aromatic. Add remaining ingredients then stir into cooked rice fluffing with a fork. Serve hot.
