  • 1 can any type of canned vegetable this works for any unsweet vegetable
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar


  • Add all ingredients to a sauce pan on the stove top at medium heat.
  • Stir frequently until heated through.



  • Any vegetable will benefit from the addition of sugar (sweet), hot sauce (heat), lemon juice (acid) and butter (fat). 
  • You can substitute any type of fat for the butter:  oil, bacon grease, etc. 
  • It's acceptable to substitute any sweet for the sugar such as maple syrup, honey, raw sugar, etc.  Just be aware that maple syrup and honey also lend their own flavors. 
  • Feel free to substitute other kinds of heat such as cayenne instead of hot sauce. 
PRO TIP:  Always taste before serving.  If for any reason the flavor is off, add salt and pepper, stir, taste again.  Only add small amounts and retaste with each addition.
