Sometimes I don’t finish a bottle of red wine before it starts to “go bad”. And I often leave it sitting on the counter for weeks just in case I find a use for it in cooking. Well, tonight was one of those nights!
You can add red wine to asparagus instead of, or along with balsamic vinegar. I like to add it to any vegetable that goes well with balsamic vinegar. Red wine has a similar flavor when cooked, but in my opinion, adds more depth of flavor (and it’s healthy). Just add a few splashes, let it reduce, and add a few spices, and you’re done!
