This carrot-potato puree has an amazing silky-smooth texture. We give it a sophisticated touch with orange zest, hazelnuts and garlic. For a simpler dish, just make the puree and skip the topping.

Recipe Ingredients for Carrot Puree with Hazelnuts

1 pound carrots (5-6 medium), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 Sweet Potato
2 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts, toasted (see Tip)
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Carrot Puree with Hazelnuts

  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven fitted with a steamer basket. Steam carrots and potatoes until very soft, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine hazelnuts, olives, orange zest, garlic and 1 teaspoon oil in a small bowl.

  3. Transfer the carrots and potatoes to a food processor; add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and salt. Process until smooth. Serve each portion with a spoonful of the hazelnuts.

  4. Tip: To toast chopped nuts or seeds, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
