So I just read the first 2 books in the "Crazy Rich Asians" trilogy and they had me craving Chinese food! These books are so good and the descriptions of all that delicious food really was something! I decided to come up with a fried rice recipe that would be low in Smartpoints, but still taste good. Now, yes, I know I could have used cauliflower rice instead of brown rice, but the whole point was that I wanted real rice! Feel free to substitute if you feel the need. Now if anyone knows of a healthy dumpling recipe..hit me up! HAHA!
