Recipe: Glazed root vegetables

Glazed root vegetables — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

Any type of root vegetable works well in this side dish. For variety try sweet potatoes, parsnips or rutabagas.


Directions

In a saucepan, add the water, onions, carrots, turnips and potatoes. Simmer uncovered over medium heat until vegetables are tender and the water is almost absorbed, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar and olive oil. Turn up the heat and continue to cook, shaking the pan until the vegetables are glazed and slightly golden. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
