Featured Recipe Query: Crunchy rice

What do you do with this much extra brown rice? These are two real-live views of our fridge from a few months ago. We ordered Chinese food for four, and later that night, one of us got hungry again and ordered a dish from the joint on the corner that delivers until 12am (this was a particularly intense ordering-in day). The remaining unopened boxes could either be given away, eaten soon, or saved until they got crunchier and made into something later.

We need your ideas for those recipes that involve the rice staying put! We tend to reheat our brown rice from takeout and serve it a week or two later. Inevitably, it’s a little dehydrated, but it works. Do you use water, broth, or something else to make your rice stay “ricey”?Have you found a way to use crunchy rice in recipes? What about on top of savory pies? Take a walk on the wild side: what about crunchy rice instead of typical cake crumble in certain recipes? Submit your ideas to us!
