When I steam vegetables or boil rice I leave it to cool off for a few hours and then put it into a plastic lunch box and then into the fridge. After a day the vegetables get very soggy with a pool of water at the bottom of the lunch box. The rice turns brittle and tastes like sand.
I don't have time to cook everyday, I try to get as much cooking done as possible on Sundays and store the result in the fridge.
I try to Google things about avoiding moisture or drying vegetables but this gives me unrelated results.
Can anyone give me advice for avoiding these problems?
Thank you very much.
