Baby Bok Choy! Cut off bottom, separate leaves and wash well. Place on baking pan and sprinkle/spray with olive oil and sea salt. 400 degrees until the ends start to brown. Excellent

Brussels sprouts. My sister-in-law served these- simply cut sprouts in half the long way, drizzles with olive oil, salt and pepper, and oven roasted 425 till started to brown up and tender. She apologized for some being burned, but the flavor was not compromised at all. Terrific!

I love to roast pumpkin and butternut squash. Here's a link to how other people internationally use pumpkin, as well as my Italian recipe for pumpkin lasagna!

While I agree with everyone else, I would have to say carrots because they become a whole new dish. Roast carrots in sticks/strips taste like sweet potato fries--they're so good!

Honestly? Carrots. Nothing brings out the carroty-ness better than a good roasting with a little olive oil and some cracked pepper!
