How to Freeze Rice
Freezing leftover rice—or making extra next time rice is on the menu-can be a real timesaver on busy weeknights or when you're looking for a quick lunch or dinner. Here's the best way to freeze rice for use later.
Freeze cooked brown and long grain rice to use later for stir-fries or a quick meal. (Short grain and wild rice get sticky.) Cook and cool rice, package in large resealable bags with a date and label, and freeze flat. You can divide the rice into whatever portions will work best for you. You can reheat by microwaving the rice, stirring a couple times during cooking.
