Balsamic Roasted Potatoes With Asparagus

A simple, delicious dish that includes seasonal asparagus and new potatoes with the delicate sweetness of oleoresin vinegar.

I’ve been keen about oleoresin vinegar of late, adding it to all or any my meals and binge-eating bread and and oleoresin vinegar dip. It’s pretty addictive  stuff and adds such a beautiful, distinctive flavour to things.

Today’s formula uses it to bring out the sweetness of seasonal asparagus and provides a crisp golden coating to those new potatoes. 

So flavorous, thus moreish so comforting. I feel this may create the proper dish for AN Easter lunch or dinner. or simply an easy, casual nighttime dinner in itself.
