Uses for Leftover Pumpkin

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Category: FAQ

You've opened a can of pumpkin to make a delicious Fall treat... only now you're wondering what to do with the leftover 1/4 cup... or 2 tbsp or 1/3 cup... and so on.

Replace Applesauce

Canned or pureed pumpkin is a great substitute for applesauce in baked goods. I recently used pumpkin instead of applesauce in my cornbread recipe (p. 49 HHC) and also in my cinnamon-raisin bicuits and both were deeeeelish.

Freeze for Later

A Herbie shared this tip: "I'm going to freeze the leftover pumpkin in ice cubes." (Thanks Linda!)

Pumpkin Recipes

A great tip from a fellow Herbie, Robin "love how quick and easy the Skinny Mac N Cheese is from HHLL!! Great way to use up pumpkin!"

These HH recipes only use a little pumpkin -- so they're all a great way to use up leftovers!

1. Single-Serving Pumpkin Muffin

2. HH's Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (or HH's Green Pumpkin Smoothie)

3. Curried Pumpkin Lentil Soup

4. Oatmeal Cookies!

5. Maple-Pumpkin Muffins!

and I can't help but end the post on this note:

Crustless Pumpkin Pie (Fat-Free)
