Cooking tips

Some brown rice can take a little longer to cook and, possibly, need more liquid. If rice is still a little firm after it's cooked add in ¼ cup of water and let it sit for about 20 minutes or so.

Brown rice can be made ahead of time and frozen. After it's slightly cooled, portion out into freezer bags, flatten out, and freeze. To warm up, take the rice out of the bag and place into a freezer safe bowl and warm up for 1-2 minutes or until hot.
