Lately I have been really into root vegetables and literally can't get enough of them. I have been roasting them, mashing them, and lately throwing them into the slow cooker for an easy side dish or meal to have during the week. Cooking the vegetables without any added broth or sauce in the slow cooker creates a nice cross between a roasted vegetable and a slow cooked vegetable and I haven't had any trouble with the vegetable burning in my slow cooker. If you are nervous about your slow cooker, consider adding a small amount of broth. This can also be turned into a stew if you prefer by adding vegetable broth, some tomato paste, or diced tomatoes.

Add everything to the slow cooker and toss so vegetables are evenly coated. Cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours, until vegetables are tender. If you slow cooker cooks hot, you may want to add some vegetable broth to prevent burning.
