I heart balsamic… September 3, 2009

Filed under: Meatless,Pasta,Side dish — WannaBe Chef @ 7:34 pm

I can safely say that balsamic vinegar has been an acquired taste for me.  After a few really bad balsamic vinagrettes, I was sure I didn’t like it.  But with all this blog and recipe searching, I’ve seen so many recipes that use it.  I decided I needed to give this ingredient a second chance.  I bought my first bottle not long ago, and the rest is history!

Orzo with Balsamic Glazed Onions
I saw this recipe on Le Petit Peirogi who adapted a recipe from Cook Like a Champion

I subbed beef broth for the chicken stock because I had some that needed to be used.  Otherwise, I pretty much followed the recipe exactly.  I served this with green beans and salmon that I seasoned with salt, pepper, and dill, and brushed with BBQ sauce. 



The verdict:  Another simple side dish that I’m sure I’ll be making again.  And I totally put extra balsamic on mine 🙂
