Sweet Glazed Spring Vegetables

Meets nutrition guidance set by the American Diabetes Association®

The first tender veggies of spring don’t need much to make them shine: a sprinkle of salt and herbs, a few cloves of garlic, a squeeze of lemon and a touch of Splenda Stevia Sweetener. These simple ingredients come together to make a rustic glaze that enhances the delicate flavors of the season.
