Pomegranate balsamic vinegar might sound like an exotic ingredient, but you can get it right on Amazon. It’s well worth tracking down, and I’m sure you’ll find loads of uses for it. It’s perfect for salad dressings, but would also be good drizzled on braised greens or a bowl of lentil soup. Me, I could practically drink the stuff right from the bottle. Recipe Note: The vegetable combination I’ve suggested here is terrific, but feel free to change it up. Cauliflower and sweet potatoes would be my top alternate contenders.
