Want a fast side dish and love rice?? You gotta try this.. Frugal to the maxx!

My daughter works late shifts at the grocery store and at night she was buying frozen rice in bags. I had a hissy fit and started making my own.

Additional Note: Defrost rice first then heat... See instructions below! Cover rice with Plastic wrap before defrosting and then heating your rice.

DO NOT REHEAT YOUR RICE WITH A PAPER TOWEL COVER! USE PLASTIC WRAP! Plastic wrap hold in the moisture!

Rice Cooker

Ingredients

2 c
dry jasmine rice
3 c
water, jasmine rice contains more water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Simmer rice in the rice cooker till done or simmer on stove on low for 22-25 minutes until rice is soft and all water is absorbed. OR cook according to package directions.
2
Once rice is done, cool, then scoop it out onto a cookie sheet. I use a cookie scoop to portion the rice. Cover with plastic wrap. Then freeze the cookie sheet for 2-4 hours. When the rice is frozen, transfer the rice to a baggie(double wrap) or a freezer container. Be sure to seal this well so you don't get freezer burn. Use within 3 months.
3
To use: Place 1-2 scoops of rice into a bowl. Add 1-2 tsp of water or broth per 1/2 cup. Cover rice with plastic wrap and defrost for 30 seconds or longer if needed. Separate the rice with a fork, reseal and heat as normal. Stop to check the rice so you don't overheat and get dry rice! Enjoy your handy work!!
