Because rice can take quite a significant amount of time to cook, and not everyone likes the taste of quick 5 minute rice, you will be happy to know that you can freeze rice for later! You just need to follow a few important steps before freezing to ensure the quality is still good when you go to thaw and re-use it in a later dish.
Cook your rice as usual. Allow to cool, then place in refrigerator. After the rice is chilled in the fridge, transfer rice to freezer bags or containers, and freeze as usual. Allowing the rice to chill will avoid the problem of mushy rice when you thaw it.
To use, simply thaw and reheat!
