Use It Up…Rice

There are so many ways and cuisines that use rice, that it’s probably impossible to find a cook who doesn’t have it in their kitchen.  Cooked rice freezes beautifully, and it’s great to keep on hand.  We freeze ours flat in quart plastic freezer bags, in 1 or 2 cup portions.
Cooking rice is easy too…and it makes sense to prepare extra for quicker meals.  I just pour my frozen cooked rice into a covered dish suitable for the microwave and heat it a few minutes until it’s steaming, stirring once or twice.  If you just need cooked rice for adding to a recipe, let it thaw without heating.

Here are some great savory recipes that use rice and stretch a meal with a low cost ingredient.
