Freezing Brown Rice

July 1, 2005

Scoop of brown rice. Freezing brown rice.Save time and money on healthy brown rice by buying just the plain natural long grain rice. Cook the whole package at once. I cook about 3 pounds at a time. Cook until within 10 minutes of being done, drain and cool and package in individual freezer bags. When rice is needed for a meal thaw out a bag and cook in chicken (or other) broth with herbs and seasonings for ten minutes for a healthy, thrifty, and very tasty side dish!

I cooked too much brown rice for dinner. Can I put it in a freezer bag and freeze it?

Absolutely. You can even buy frozen brown rice at Trader Joe's.

Yes I do it all the time. Actually when I cook rice I always cook a lot and then freeze it in portions.

As already mentioned, Yes! I measured it out first so that way I knew how much was in there (in case I was using it for a recipe). After putting it in the ziploc baggie, I made sure to get the extra air out and then pressed it flat for easier storage in the freezer.

Yes, I do it all the time. I use quart freezer bags and figure on enough to feed my husband and myself. Enjoy!

Yes. I use a rice cooker to cook a bag of brown rice every weekend. I freeze it in one cup portions to take to work.
