Balsamic Fried Salad

We've all heard of balsamic roasted veggies, but did you know that you can also use balsamic vinegar to fry veggies???

This way is much quicker and yet the flavour is still very rich and full. If you're a fan of balsamic roasted veggies you'll love this quick substitute.

In a frying pan combine 1 teaspoon molasses, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar.
Swirl around the pan til molasses is runny & all liquid is warm.
Add a chopped zucchini, chopped large field mushroom, chopped 1/2 green capsicum.
Swirl pan around with the veggies so the liquid coats the vegetables.
Saute for 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed and vegetables are soft.

Serve on a plate over salad leaves, 1 shredded carrot, 1/2 cup red kidney beans and a chopped shallot. Top with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.


  1. Never thought of adding the molasses to the mix, I wonder if you could do it with maple syrup as well.

    1. Yes maple syrup would work too - for a sweeter taste. I find the molasses really brings out the balsamic flavour :-)
