OK, it looks like they have covered MOST of the vegetables.

However, the following can also be roasted:

winter squashes - acorn and hubbard
parsnips
turnips
fennel root
many variety of potatoes
sweet potatoes
Cipollotto onions
and one of my favorites - poblano peppers

While I'm not a fan of brussels sprouts, I absolutely LOVE these. They taste like they have balsamic vinegar on them, although they don't:

Yummy delicious (and easy-peasy) brussels sprouts

They're always a HUGE hit with everyone, even those people who say, "Ewwww, I DETEST brussels sprouts. These CAN'T be brussels sprouts." Oh, yes, they are!

I also love roasting eggplant. I just slice it on a paper towel, salt them a bit to drain their bitterness, wash off the salt, dice it up, and roast it with a TINY BIT of olive oil drizzled on. Delish!

That easy peasy brussels sprouts recipe is a winner. It is now my absolute favorite way to have brussels sprouts!

celery root, turnips & salsify are great roasted. Also cauliflower or romanesca tossed with cumin or curry seasoning is tasty after being baked in the oven. And don't forget all types of yams & sweet potatoes. I've also seen roasted green beans on restaurant menus, especially the purple dragon beans (which would otherwise lose their color in water). Oh and roasted tomatoes are the bomb.

Radishes do mellow and get sweeter. I had an abundance of different kinds from my CSA this fall and tossed them in the oven with olive oil and S & P, yum!

Parsnips and turnips and carrots, oh my! I love how they caramelize from their sweetness. If I have to make a lot, I mix in sweet potatoes and maybe some rutabaga. But definitely parsnips.

My CSA box had Delicata squash. A great winter squash. Easy to cut and the skin is so delicate when cooked, no peeling required.

I also like roasted asparagus.

For winter squash/sweet potatoes I like to use a spicier spice mix: cumin, coriander and cayenne are perfect. They really counter the sweetness. This works well on carrots and potatoes as well.

Have you ever roasted a lemon along side your veggies? It ends up have a really interesting and rich smoky sweet flavor. Try it out! (And then squeeze it on your chicken or whatever). If you have access to meyer lemons, you can even eat the whole roasted lemon! (They have a softer skin/sweeter flavor)
