Am planning a vegetarian dinner party, with Butternut Squash & Roasted Garlic Galette as the main dish. What else should I serve? (Read on.)
I'm thinking the Not-Too-Virtuous Salad with Caramelized Apple Dressing would go well. And I'm thinking that a light soup (something I can make ahead, of course) would be nice to start. And of course, there's dessert. Your suggestions? No bell pepper, chiles, paprika or chickpeas, please. Thanks so much! ;o)

For dessert, try making fig pudding or Gulab Jamuns.
use as a base like you would couscous, with a Tagine of veggies spices in middle eastern style, for a topping.
While that might be more a main dish..you could pare it down to a side dish. Prehaps using the 'couscous' cauliflower to make a spinach based faux tabouleh salad, subing the cauliflower for Bulgar wheat, and using greek salad additions, such as pepperchini, feta cheese, greek dressing, and olives and mint if you wish.
If you do the 'couscous' for a salad..don't cook it long or not at all...just a quick warming with turmeric and cumin is all that's needed for 'almost raw' application.
And your slaw or another one brought up in that ongoing Hotline question would make another nice contrast, with vegetables that didn't make it to the Thanksgiving table.
Both the soup and slaw offer digestive aids that are very tasty.
The galette is so good we had at the food52 potluck, so delicious.
