Slow Cooker Saffron Rice

Saffron. Just the name brings out images and flavors of decadence, earthiness,  bright colors of the East, and luxury.

This recipe for Saffron Rice was made in the slow cooker, but can also be easily made over the stove-top or utilize your ultimate rice cooker.

The ingredients are Momma Cuisine one-two steps. Simple, easy to find and easy to make. The most expensive thing on here is the Saffron threads that I found at Trader Joe's.

Also, feel free to add peas or other vegetables, even pieces of browned chicken for a more complete meal. Why not?? That's what the slow cooker is for!                                               

  • 2 cups of Jasmine or long grain rice
  • 4 cups of low sodium Chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon of saffron threads
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 small onion – diced
  • Pepper to taste

Stir all the ingredients in the slow cooker (or rice cooker).

Cover and cook for 3 hours.

Looks really good but at what level in slow cooker do you cook for 3 hours?
