My family just loves it! Very easy and a perfect way to mix veggies in a smooth, sweet, and sour taste that goes well with rice, goat cheese, or yogurt! Try it with some rice: white, seasoned, or any!

I used straight molasses in place of the brown sugar but I would simplify this recipe next time going with a balsamic glaze in place of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. It'll be easier to make a reduction with the glaze and broth together. One of my teenagers loves and craves a good leek recipe now and then in a quiche or over noodles. Read More

I used chicken broth in place of vegetable and cut the brown sugar in half after reading the reviews. Good recipe that goes great with wild game. Thanks for sharing! Read More
