Glazed Baby Vegetables

Glazed Baby Vegetables

Serves 6 to 8

This same method for coating vegetables in a buttery, sweet glaze works well with any cooked larger vegetables, too. Simply chop them into manageable sizes before adding them to the skillet.

  • 1/2 pound baby turnips (about 1 pound if greens attached)
  • 3/4 pound baby carrots (about 2 pounds if greens attached)
  • 1/4 pound baby zucchini
  • 1/4 pound baby patty pan squash
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill, mint or chives (optional)

Trim baby turnips and carrots, leaving about 1/2-inch greens, if attached, and peel. Steam vegetables separately, covered, until barely tender, 4 to 8 minutes, depending on vegetable. Vegetables may be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled. In a large heavy skillet cook vegetables in butter with sugar, salt and pepper to taste over moderately low heat, stirring, until heated through and glazed, about 4 minutes. Toss with herbs, if desired, and serve with roasted new potatoes.
