How-To Freeze Brown Rice (Video)

YouTube Preview Image

I don’t freeze a whole lot of things.

I prefer to save my freezer space for ice-cream and frozen bananas (to make “Better than Banana Ice Cream” ) but this is one trick that I just HAD to share.

Partly because I am now obsessed with freezing my brown rice and partly because it’s just too easy not to know!

Having frozen brown rice in the freezer will give you a great ‘head-start’ option when time is not on your side and (as you’ll see in the video) you can make both individual sized portions (a trick I learned from Summer Tomato) or nice big family sized bags.

So enough with the chit-chat and on to How-To Freeze Your Brown Rice!

    Hi. Just snap the brown rice in half, and pull out the hlaf sections. That would be easier.

    Does it take a lot of force to break the frozen ‘rice-sheets’ in the zip-locked bags in two before getting them out? It seems to me that this would be much easier.

    I agree with the comments that suggest breaking the rice before removing it from bag. Yup!

    Great idea! But I don’t have a microwave …how else can I thaw out the rice?

    What a great idea, thank you! I often forgo having brown rice because it takes so long to cook and I’m always in a hurry. Love your emails I get and often try the recipes.
    Keep them coming. BIG THANK YOU regards Maureen from New Zealand
