A favorite vegetable dish --actually more of a main dish- is layering vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, yellow squash with your favorite spaghetti sauce and mozzarella. You just layer it and bake it. It is quite yummy.
The roasted root vegetables sound really great and a nice side to an Easter celebration.
Asparagus or grean beans are also more Easter sides. Check out the spark people recipes. There are lots of great ideas.

A hot dish could be zucchini and corn with tomato salsa. Just cut the zucchini in bite size pieces and cook with corn and your favorite tomato salsa. If you have the corn frozen, defrost in the microwave first.

It actually needs to be a hot vegetable dish, not sure exactly why, but the roasted vegetables is sounding pretty good. I don't know what the main dish is, but it's usually roast beef, ham, or chicken.
how about a broccoli ( does not look spelled correctly) salad - chopped broccoli, quartered red grapes, sunflower seeds, grated carrot, the zest and juice of one lemon, honey to taste and light mayonnase? can make it the day before to meld the flavors together.

I am with the roasted root veggies drizzled with a tiny bit of olive oil and balsamich vinegar.

Green beans are usually a favorite of everyone. But not the famous green bean casserole - too many calories! Would salad be included in their request, or is someone else bringing that? I don't remember salads being served at Easter in my house, and you can make an awesome salad - mushrooms, artichoke hearts, walnuts, Craisins, and all of the fantastic varieties of lettuce. Yum! It's breakfast time, but I'm making myself hungry! Enjoy.
No fad diets for me!

Maybe some roasted root vegetables... potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, etc.

So I have the task of bringing a hot vegetable dish to my husband's family's Easter dinner on the 23rd and I have no idea what to make. I want to make something that is healthy so I can eat it, but I want it to be something that everyone else will enjoy. Any ideas?
