Tasty Recipes with Almond Oil
Tofu with Zucchini & Almond Cream is Delicious – This tofu with zucchini and almond cream recipe was developed for Randy’s daughter in his kitchen while he was in India many years ago.

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!”
