This colorful and elegant side dish is so easy to make. I love making this with beets and shallots straight from our local farmers’ market. Green onions or chives may be substituted for the shallot if you prefer.

This curried squash soup has a very creamy consistency but is completely dairy-free except for the optional garnish of sour cream. Roasting the squash adds an extra depth of flavor.
