fried quinoa

When I discovered Kosher for Passover soy sauce I discovered a whole new menu of foods. I love cooking chinese and this version of vegetable fried rice using quinoa is great for Passover and all year round. Add tofu if it is not Passover. It is best to use day old quinoa for this, but works either way. Reheats well.
