Gluten Free Balsamic Reduction – Balsamic Drizzle Recipe

This balsamic glaze flavors and dresses up just about any every day dish, from meat to vegetables to potatoes and rice dishes. You can make a double batch and keep it on your kitchen counter for future uses. I do not like the idea of using sugar on a dinner dish, but when I have guests that are not on a restricted diet I make an exception by making a balsamic reduction. Perhaps you will give this balsamic drizzle a try, too. Enjoy! My guests do!

Use it on barbecued, fried or broiled meat; vegetables; rice; potatoes; and more! It makes  a great substitute for ketchup and dresses up the most boring meals.

Balsamic Reduction Recipe (Drizzle)

An easy balsamic reduction, also known as balsamic drizzle, to top any gluten free dish you desire.


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. In a small sauce pan combine vinegar and brown sugar
  2. Cook until thick and it reduces to half the amount, about 20 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool for about an hour or so. It will thicken more upon cooling.


I tried using agave syrup instead of brown sugar, but it did not taste good at all.

Serving Suggestions:

Drizzle over vegetables, meat, rice, etc.

Place on table in a creamer for easy pouring.
