Plain Rice -- Make Ahead OAMC Throw It in the Freezer!!
I started doing this to save some time in the evenings. I don't like using that 10 minute Uncle Ben's but I do like having my rice ready that fast ;O). I really like using sushi rice! Use whatever rice you prefer!
- Ready In:
- Cook as directed in rice cooker (or your preferred method).
- When rice is done immediately rinse, in strainer, with cold water till rice is cool (to stop cooking). Fill ziplock baggies (quart size) with 2 cups of rice each. Flatten out and remove air. Makes 4 bags. (You can do 1 cup bags too ~ Use smaller baggies like sandwich or snack ones) I usually have 1/2 - 1 cup rice leftover which I just make a little dish for myself with.
- Use one bag for 2 of you ~ Two bags for 4 of you :O) Just take out of the freezer in the morning and throw in the fridge till you start cooking!

This never occurred to me and I'm not sure why not. I used 2 cups of uncooked rice, cooked, and put into sandwich bags. I then put them into the freezer bags with my cut up fresh broccoli and froze. When it was was time for stir fry, I microwaved the rice in a bowl for about a minute or so, and then made fried rice. This is exactly what I needed for fried rice especially since its best to use day old/cold rice. I'll continue doing this.1Reply
I have been doing this for a while now......never thought to post it so other knew also. Works great everytime. When I need to make rice because freezer is empty, I usually cook a whole bag and then package and freeze into meal size portions and individual portions for a fast lunch, just add left over meats.5Reply
