Foolproof way to cook vegatables??

I know this method is too easy to have been "discovered" but I've been using it a lot lately and just want to get some feedback / opinion / suggestions. Add some fat to a frying pan (olive oil or butter). Then add your vegatbale cut into even, bite size pieces. The vegatables should cover the bottom of the pan completely. Adjust the portion or pan size accordingly. Cook on medium high heat for 1-2 minutes. Then add enough water to almost cover the vegatables. Add your choice of seasoning, i.e. garlic powder, nutmeg, etc. Cook on high until the water evaporates almost, but not quite completely, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve and eat.

I find this technique quick and almost foolproof. The vegatble always come out cooked perfectly. I've tried this with asparagus, carrots, zucchini, and stringbeans. A little nutmeg and/or cinnamon goes good with carrots; garlic powder with everything else.

What other vegatable would work in this way? What other seasonings?
