Additional Information:
Quinoa is very nutritious, more so than rice. We are trying to find more ways of preparing quinoa, so that we will eat more quinoa. This is "quinoa" fried rice done according to Chinese fried rice method. I tried it today and it is very tasty and both my Mr. FECS and our Little FECS like it.
