Saffron Rice with Sausage and Kale - An #easy #healthy #frugal #dinner! by @wearychef

You know the little packet of yellow saffron rice at the supermarket? I LOVED that rice as a teenager. Not your typical teen food, but I would make it as an after-school snack. I actually haven’t had it in quite a while, but this recipe hit me last night. My husband said repeatedly that it was really good, and I guess he was surprised after I had told him the ingredients earlier in the day. (He doesn’t usually jump for joy when I say kale is for dinner.)

I have to agree that this saffron rice with sausage and kale tastes great! Plus, it is very easy to make and full of protein, fiber, and vitamins. It may be the perfect weeknight meal! I’m not going to lie. This one might not be a kid pleaser because of all the kale, but boy is it good for them if you can get them to eat it. Let me know if you have any luck with that.
