Carrots pair beautifully with anything from roasted meat to grilled fish. Cook the carrots fully to ensure a velvety smooth puree. —Gina Myers, Spokane, Washington

"I had high hopes for this recipe, but it just didn't thrill me. It was a lot of prep work for the final result. Maybe some added spices could pep it up."
