This is easy and very low in carbs - it makes a quick one-pot meal. Add bread if you're not counting carbs.

Such an exotic and delicious treat for my taste buds. The saffron stands out, but it IS the star of the show here, and the rest of the ingredients compliment each other without standing alone. I let my saffron threads steep in a couple of tablespoons of very warm water about an hour before beginning this recipe, as this helps release the flavor. Thanks for sharing, One Happy Woman.
