Veggie Fried Quinoa

Do you love fried rice, but don't love the calories?  Try this veggie fried quinoa instead.  The quinoa replaces the rice - as well as the calories, but it doesn't remove any of the flavor.  I like this version so much more than traditional fried rice.  Why?  Because this one is only 3 SmartPoints per serving, 1 cup!
