In a wide frying pan or saute pan over high heat, warm oil and add onion and sausage; cook, stirring, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add thyme, beans, and rice and stir until well-coated with oil. Stir in tomatoes and water and bring to a boil; add saffron and mix well. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
