Carrot Puree with Hazelnut Tapenade

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/carrot_potato_puree.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2009

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

4 servings, about 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  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 hazelnut tapenade.
