I hated most veggies as a kid. I suffered through many mushy veggies, and later cruched on raw vegetables dipped in Ranch dressing throughout my time living at home, wondering how anyone actually enjoyed eating vegetables.
But then my mom discovered this recipe for cauliflower when I was a teen, and all of a sudden, I was actually asking for cauliflower. So when I was planning the menu for my dinner party, I immediatly thought of this dish, knowing I needed to serve some sort of veg. My mom's recipe doesn't include broccoli, but I decided to add it for a bit of variety and color. There's no broccoli in the picture though; I served myself last, and by the time I got to this dish, all of the broccoli was gone! :)
The balsamic vinegar adds a savory tang to the veggies, without overpowering your taste buds. Balsamic is actually a great, flavorful addition to most vegetables.
