I need a veggie idea

I have been tasked with making a veggie dish for Passover. There will be about 20 people or so. I don't want to make the usual broccoli bake or any other standard type thing. In the past I have made string beans with roasted garlic and I have also made roasted root veggies with things like parsnip and celery root among other veggies.

Give me some suggestions to really wow then this year.

How about a roasted vegetable terrine? I don't have a recipe off-hand, but I found this one that looks pretty good. For the sauce, I would do a balsamic and red wine reduced syrup, or serve it with an ultra-high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Are you serving it at home or taking it somewhere?

IC that is a great idea, but I don't think it would make enough. I would have to make a few of them and I wouldn't have time to do that.

Sizz I will be taking this to someone elses house where I will be able to heat it up or something if need be.

Does it have to be a cooked vegetable dish? Something like Panzanella would be good too.

Nope it does not have to be cooked. Panzanella is a great idea!

Oh shoot I just realized Panzanella won't work. This is for Passover and we can't eat bread during that holiday.

You could use this recipe as a base and play around with it a bit. I think kalamatta olives, and dill instead of basil would taste better, plus using fresh tomato and rehydrated (as opposed to canned) cannellini beans. Also, increasing the olive oil amount as to give the salad more flavor.

Beans are actually a no no on Passover as well (depending on who you talk to), but I may just make this one anyway. After all I did make green beans one year and no one complained about it Thanks IC, it looks great.
