Put it in the freezer and then find it like six months later, wonder why you kept it in the first place, and throw it away.

I freeze it too! Since most recipes ask for half a can or something, it's easy to get two recipes out of one can this way, without getting tired of eating pumpkin.

Thank you for the inspiration! I actually opened a new can - because this sounded so good - and whipped up a smoothie just now, with soy milk, pumpkin, flax seeds, oats, ice, and spices (cloves, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon) + a shot of soy creamer for extra creaminess.

Pumpkin pie smoothie! Omni husband is raving. *fabulous*

Heh! This is the reason I avoid freezing anything. I already have like 100 frozen bananas taking up residence there.

Canned pumpkin is difficult to get here, so throwing it away or feeding it to the cat are not options! (Not that the cat doesn't deserve yummies, but she can enjoy easier-to-find yummies.)

I tried the Oh She Glows Mac & Cheese recipe yesterday and it just kind of confirmed my thoughts that there are some things not improved by pumpkin. It wasn't bad, but I actually liked the sauce better before adding the pumpkin.

I've got one more can of the precious stuff left, so I'll have to think wisely how I use it! I'm don't really ever make smoothies, but I could always start. Actually, that pumpkin pudding that missmuffcake posted looks good and easy enough for my lazy asparagus to make! Hmmmm...

a pumpkin smoothie is a good place to start. i usually put almond milk, a smidge of vanilla, a handful of pecans, some maple syrup, half a banana and a little cardamom, ginger, clove 'n cinnamon in mine.

pumpkin oatmeal is rock'n with chocolate chips on top, pumpkin pancakes, and mbm's cinnamon rolls (poopie mentioned them) = amazing. i took them to work with me last week and they were gone in 10 minutes. soooo gooooood.

is pumpkin hummus yummy? i have heard of it before, but never had it....

Pumpkin spice oatmeal sounds like it could be amazing.

I made that pumpkin mac 'n' cheese, and it was really good. In fact, I made it on purpose and had leftover pumpkin that I used in the pumpkin muffins!

I once put a smooshed sweet potato in a tofu scramble and it was super tasty, so I imagine pumpkin would work as well!

I did this as well post pumpkin revelation. I think it was zwingtip and/or CQ.

Ha! It was both! http://choirqueer.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/pumpkin-tofu-scramble-astronomz/

I just always double a pumpkin bread/muffins recipe to use the whole can since most seem to take one cup. I guess technically, you are using less pumpkin that the recipe calls for since a can is a bit less than 2 cups, but I've never had a problem with that. Quick breads aren't too fussy thankfully....
