My husband rather disliked brown rice but I made half and half brown and white for a while and now he prefers just the plain brown rice. Me too! I use it for everything, freeze it often, and also prepare homemade frozen lunches with it.

Burrito bowls!! Just throw in some black beans, pico, corn (I use whatever leftover veggies I have) and maybe a little cheddar cheese and salsa in with the brown rice. Heaven in a bowl. Lol Really quick and easy too.
