Hot Tips From Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:

Leftover rice comes in handy when you're throwing together a quick dish, like Food Network Magazine's Corn Fried Rice, or when you need to bulk up a stir-fry or soup. Cook a big batch, cool it, then freeze it in a microwave-safe storage container for up to 1 month. To thaw, sprinkle the rice with water and microwave, covered, until heated through.
