Looking for recipes using pumpkin puree

f
Fiona Mar 2, 2012 04:25 AM

It is the time of year when I am trying to use up all the veggies in my freezer to make room for this year's veggies. I have a lot of pumpkin puree and I am running out of ideas. I have done risotto (sooo good!), cookies, bread, soups. I am trying to be fairly low calorie as I have just quit smoking and am trying not to gain weight.
Thanks

        Be sure you squeeze the chard dry. I also chopped the stems and cooked them with the onions. It added a little more texture.

        If you have any sumac and pomegranate molasses, pumpkin kibbeh is different and tasty.

          Salted Pumpkin Caramels.

            Pumpkin Crockpot steel cut oats http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe... This is the lowest cal version I know of, but there are a million versions out there where you can mix your own spices (instead of using pumpkin pie spice) or use brown sugar instead of splenda, etc.

              looks tasty! i don't normally sweeten my oatmeal at all, so i may try this without the sugar.

              How about a pumpkin/coconut curry? If you add some good veggies and lean chicken, you would have a pretty healthy weeknight meal.
