I have a question about the recipe "Jean-Georges' Ginger Fried Rice" from Genius Recipes. Could you use the frozen rice in a bag sold at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods? If so, would you even need to thaw it before using?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I bet frozen rice would work quite well! I would thaw it before using it, but that's just me. I'm sure it would be fine if you didn't thaw!
Additionally: I just read a comment under the article where AntoniaJames said she would cook rice and freeze it just for fried rice. Genius!
Hate to disagree, but I would probably make the rice myself. Granted, the prepared rice would work. But in a simple dish like this, you really want the ingredients to shine, and I think there would be a perceptible difference between prepackaged frozen rice and rice you'd make at home.

I definetly think it would work. After thawing the amount needed continue with step 3. Let us know if it works.
I use frozen rice all the time for fried rice. I freeze my own or buy it. Trader Joes is fine tasting. I par-cook the rice and till it's no longer frozen but still cold, probably a minute or a minute and a half in the microwave.
