Trader Joe's has pre-cooked brown rice that isn't that bad. I have been cooking half brown and half white basmati rice (we just don't like plain brown rice. then I freeze it into individual portions in small zip bags. then I put all the small bags into a big one to keep them together and keep them from drying out. easy to zap when needed. if I need one for lunch, i just leave it out on my desk and heat whatever I am eating it with. toss together, you don't need to heat the rice alone.

I find I am cooking more and more brown and wild rice rather than white rice. The pouches are a quick way to make a delicious side dish.
I love the pouch rices (just make sure you check the ingredients/nutrients. Some good looking ones aren't so good!) and also the individual bowls. Both are down with the rice. I also will make a big batch of rice when I have the time, and freeze it in one/two cup portions. In my opinion, Alton Brown has the best, easiest, foolproof brown rice recipe.

It's also really great with spices and herbs mixed in before you bake.
