Thank you for this Erika! I’ve been doing stir fry quite often lately, especially since it makes a quick dinner. I use the frozen mixed peppers, which help out a lot for me since I’m usually in need of extra time. It didn’t register in my head to use cornstarch. I’ll remember this for tonight – tofu and veggie stir fry…I may just toss in a few almonds 🙂

Hi Erika, just want to mention that this this looks amazing!! I haven’t had much practice cooking with almonds, so this would be a great starting point! Now that looks super healthy!
