This is very good! I accidentally used Walnuts instead of Almonds and think it will be even better when I make it with Almonds.

This is very good. My rating of five stars stems from someone who is judiciously watching calories and fat content. So from that standpoint this is just perfect. I originally stated that if I were able to eat more indulgently I may have only given four stars....but after my husband came home, who can eat whatever he wants and paid it a high compliment, I decided it must be five star from any angle. And considering how quick and easy this is and how nutritious it is, it is definitely top notch in my book, and will be made again often. I think I may add some curry next time for a change. Thanks for sharing, this is a keeper!
