Balsamic Asparagus – {Holiday Recipe}

Balsamic Asparagus – {Holiday Recipe}

Balsamic Asparagus gives a tart and earthy note that is truly a unique culinary flavor. The little green springs are the perfect side for any dish. We love to show up to Christmas dinner with these yummy stalks in hand. The sweet and sour glaze is the perfect match for this bitter vegetable!

We love this recipe for the holidays! It is a quick and easy side dish that will definitely get you some brownie points! Especially as a vegan in a non vegan family, this dish will get zero complaints! The savory and sweet flavors of a large holiday meal can be a pretty mute way of eating. A tangy balsamic asparagus side dish will be a welcomed addition and an instant classic to your traditional meals!
