Freezer Brown Rice

Freezer Brown Rice - ButterYum

Did you know you can freeze cooked rice?  Yep, you can.  Brown rice is so healthy, but it take about 45 minute to cook once the liquid comes to a boil so I love having a precooked supply on hand.  Makes it so easy to pull a quick meal together on a busy weeknight.  

Freezer Brown Rice

makes 14 cups

Printable Recipe


  • 2 pounds (4 cups) brown rice, uncooked and rinsed
  • 10 cups water or flavorful chicken stock (try my homemade chicken stock)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 teaspoons salt (omit if using flavorful chicken stock)


  1. In a 6-quart stock pot, bring water or stock to a boil and add butter and salt; stir to melt butter and dissolve salt.  
  2. Add brown rice and stir once; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.  
  3. Cool for an hour or so before dividing up into family-friendly portions in freezer safe containers - here I put 2 cups of cooked brown rice in zip-top bags.  
  4. To use, thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat in a skillet or the microwave with a pat of butter or drizzle of oil.  Add to soups or stews, use in stir fry dishes, or whatever you feel like. 


  • You can do the same with white rice, only you'll want to reduce the cooking time from 45 minutes to approximately 18-20 minutes.
