1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons slivered almonds

⅛ teaspoon ground ginger

Comment

This is awesome!  It comes together quickly and has great flavor. My family loves it, especially my 15 year old. I tried it with two separate family cooking classes last week and it got rave reviews with participants there as well.
