How about chopped toasted walnuts? Or one of AntoniaJames' nut recipes on the site? Like this one: http://food52.com/recipes...

hazelnuts might work nicely too.

Chestnuts are such a delicate flavor, so perhaps almonds? Or chopped roasted chestnuts?

Crispy shallots also complement those types of purees well - just slice a bunch of shallots thin and saute them in oil/butter until very brown and crispy, and drain on paper towel. They keep well in the fridge, so you can do them ahead too.
