Help for Leftover Canned Pumpkin



One 15 oz. can contains
about 1 1/3 C of pumpkin
and usually a recipe calls
for 1 C.
What do you do with the
rest?

Store it:
Canned pumpkin should
last 5 to 7 days in a sealed
container. (in the fridge)
       
           or

3 months in the freezer
(in an airtight container or
freezer bag)
BUT leave a little wiggle room
because pumpkin expands
when frozen. If there is too
much inside the lid might pop.

Use it:
When making Mac and Cheese
stir pumpkin into the cheese
sauce for some vitamins and
fiber. Thin the sauce with milk
or broth if it gets too thick.
In Hummus, add pumpkin to the
chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice,
olive oil and spices in you food
processor.
Add pumpkin to Cream Cheese
by folding in with some cinnamon
or pumpkin pie spice to spread on
toast or bagels.
Put a little pumpkin in your
morning Oatmeal. Stir in with your
milk.
Add some zip to your Chili by
stirring in the pumpkin with the
liquid ingredients, stir well.

A 1/2 C of canned pumpkin gives
you all the Vitamin A you need for
a day!

Give it up for PUMPKIN!!!!!

  2. I would for sure use some in my chili. I'm always looking for ways to hide a few more veggies in there, that my son won't notice. Puree is a great way to do that. :-)

    1. Yep, that would be the " sneaky"
      way of doing it. Enjoy!
