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!”
1 sm onion finely chopped
1 pkg medium firm tofu, sliced into cubes
1 large zucchini, sliced in rounds, ½ inch thick

3 handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup almond butter*(add water and stir till thick and creamy)
