Braised Veggies with Miso Glaze

Jennifer & I have been dieting, trying to take off the pounds we gained after moving to the Restaurant Rich Portland area. One of my problems with vegetables revolves around the dairy products, cheese & butter. I've added to the Miso Glaze recipe & come up with a recipe for a rich vegetable sauce, that is low fat, low carb. Give it a try & see how you like it.
