Make Aheads: Rice

Brown rice is one of those foods that take forever to make so it's always a good idea to make a big batch all at once. You can store it in the fridge up to a week or you can freeze it in single meal serving sizes. Minute rice may be faster but it's stripped of all that is good for the sake of a faster cook. Take the extra time to make it ahead and meals will be a snap. Rice goes well with so many things and with it made ahead of time, you can make a quick stir fry while the rice heats up or you can use it as a side or in soup or casserole. The possibilities are endless!
