Tofu with Zucchini and Almond Cream

This recipe was developed for Randy’s daughter in his kitchen while he was in India many years ago.  I wanted to make her a very yummy and easy to make dinner; I am happy to say she loved it.  Recently I prepared the recipe to test it out,  take the photo above and serve it to Randy as a thank you for helping move a big plant for me. He said “with that much almond butter; of course she liked it!”
