Recipe Notes

I recommend using a high quality balsamic vinegar for this recipe.  I love MiaBella Balsamic Vinegar.  It has great flavor and you only need a little bit.  I've had my bottle for at least a year! Use a tablespoon or two in salads or drizzle a small amount on meat/tofu for easy, healthy flavor.

You can substitute the vegetable broth for chicken broth, if that's what you have available.
