Looking for recipes using pumpkin puree

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.

  1. pumpkin chard lasagna:

    I made it with half and half, not heavy cream.

      That looks excellent! I am having guests for dinner on Manday and will make it. 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.


      yes, it's rachael ray, but yes, i like it :) and i use chicken sausage

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


          Salted Pumpkin Caramels.

          To die for easy and a delicious unexpected treat/use for puree.

          1. Pumpkin Crockpot steel cut oats 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.
