340g turnips, cut into 2 1/2-cm pieces
340g carrots, cut into 2 1/2-cm pieces
10g unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, optional
1) Put the vegetables in a saucepan just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add enough water so that it comes halfway up the sides.

2) Add the butter and sugar.

3) Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower heat to maintain a simmer. Cover the vegetables with a round of parchment paper just large enough to fit the inside diameter of the pan, or with a lid set ajar.

4) Simmer the vegetables for about 8 to 10 minutes, until tender.

5) Remove the cover and raise the heat to high. Toss the vegetables frequently in the pan as the liquid evaporates, so they are coated in a shiny smooth glaze. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
