Yummy! I used fig balsamic vinegar which is what I had in my pantry. I think the sweetness of the fig really enhanced the flavor of the broccoli! Made for Veg 'N Swap tag. Thanks for posting!

More Please~ Great easy recipe to make in no time. I have even made this sauce now with my carrots. A family favorite of ours.

Nice way to serve broccoli. I would have liked the balsamic to come though a bit more though. I think I'll double the amounts next time and reduce it a little to make more of a syrup consistency, so it will cling on to the veg a little more. :)
