Put these quick and easy meals with rice in your weekly rotation.

Rice is the perfect pantry item to have on hand especially when making an unplanned meal.

To me, rice makes a meal complete and is so pretty when topped with meat or just vegetables.

And it generally freezes nicely too.

I freeze leftovers in plastic freezer zipper bags in various serving sizes.

Then just defrost when needed for a quick side dish.

Let’s check out some recipe ideas with rice.

Below each of the following images, there’s a link to the respective post with step-by-step instructions, pictures and a printable recipe.
