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!

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

  2. Great tip! I’ll be using it today. Thanks!

  3. 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.

  4. Wow who knew? I will definitely have to try this. I love the blooper at the end haha

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

  6. 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
