Brown rice takes at least 30 minutes to cook, so if you're impatient like me, then this is a great way have it ready when you want it.
cook 5 cups of brown rice according to packet instructions.
let it cool a bit, then portion the rice into the zip lock bags. 5 cups of rice tends to give me 12 bags. That's 12 meals. Then chuck in the freezer.
to thaw, bring a saucepan of water to the boil (or boil the kettle and pour that into the saucepan, yeah, student life...) and chuck it in that for a few minutes.
to make a quick easy meal, add some drained tuna, a spoonful of wholegrain mustard and some salt and pepper. Or you could even just stir in half a teaspoon of curry powder and some salt and pepper.
there is only 10 bags in the picture 'cos i've already eaten 2.
Separately you like fried food and bread, so why don't you try them together instead??
