Many stir-fry recipes use almond oil, with its subtle almond flavor and odor. Almond oil contains the second highest percentage of monosaturated fats, behind olive oil. According to the website Fat Free Kitchen, almond oil is 73 percent monosaturated fat and 19 percent of polyunsaturated fat. Monosaturated fats have a number of potential health benefits, according to the Mayo Clinic. Some of these benefits include lowering total cholesterol, normalizing blood clotting and controlling blood sugar. The smoke point of almond oil is 420 degrees Fahrenheit, making it suitable to stir-fry or lightly fry vegetables.
