Vegetable side dish for Friendsgiving?

I have the task of bringing a vegetable side dish for our second annual Friendsgiving celebration. Last year all the vegetable dishes were creamy, fatty, etc. so the host has for the vegetables to be somewhat healthy and light (green bean casserole will still make an appearance). There are three of us doing vegetables, one is making a brussels sprout slaw with cranberries and pecans, and the other is making a roasted vegetable couscous (which I assume will contain most winter veggies).

Any suggestions on what to make?

I don't want to overlap too much with the other dishes. I was thinking of a balsamic roasted squash with rosemary and goat cheese or something of that nature. Preferably a warm dish.
