A spoonful of sugar helps the veggies go down

Looking for a new way to prepare veggies? Try glazing. Pour 1 1/2 cups water into a saucepan. Add 1/2 cup each of chopped onion, carrot, turnip and potato, all cut into 1-inch pieces. Simmer uncovered until veggies are tender and the water is almost absorbed, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sugar and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Turn heat up and continue to cook, shaking pan until veggies are glazed and slightly golden. Serve.
