I wanted to have some rice in the freezer for future meals that I won't have to make the day of so this morning I packaged up 3 bags of cooked rice. Rice freezes well and since it usually takes about 15 - 20 minutes to cook, having it already cooked and in the freezer ready to go can be a nice little time saver!
All you have to do is cook your rice like normal. Either on the stove top or in a rice cooker. I happen to have a handy little rice cooker so I made mine in that. After I removed it from the microwave I poured a little bit of olive oil in with the rice and fluffed it around. You can use any kind of oil.
Then package the rice into freezer bags. Make sure you put enough into each bag as you would use in a meal so you only have to grab out one bag. I labeled the bag with "Rice" but with no date so I can reuse the bag for more rice after I use this up. Spread the rice out in the bag so it will freeze flat and be easier to stack.
