Pumpkin Parfait

Normally when you think of Pumpkin, you think of Autumn...

But I still have 3 Farmer's Market Canned Pumpkin Purees
I bought back in late September that I need to use up!

I mixed the Pumpkin Puree with cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and 
stevia; Topped with Greek Yogurt and a warm crumbled Carob Chip Brownie Cookie

The warmed up brownie made the glass all foggy ;)

Question: I need help finding more uses for canned
pumpkin purees... any suggestions or recipe links?

That looks so good! Muffins are always good as are pancakes! I like doing crustless pumpkin pies too! http://thenondairyqueen.blogspot.com/2009/12/crustless-sweet-potato-pie.html

Although, I have no doubt you can come up with some pretty great ideas!

I love using canned pumpkin, whether it's autumn or not. I usually use it in oatmeal, pancakes, or muffins. But that parfait looks amazing!

I like mixing canned pumpkin with peanut butter and cinnamon and just eating it that way. I also like making a cheesy pumpkin sauce and mixing it with rice and veggies. It's delicious!

Mmmmmm, this looks good!

I've had pumpkin and tahini puree as a side dish a while ago. It was very good and went so well with roasted chicken ...

I simply heated pumpkin puree and mixed it with a spoonful of tahini and a little salt. Very easy!

Pumpkin puree is also great to stir into a bowl of oats, or to make pancakes with it. You can also use it for baking muffins and the like.

Do you eat the pumpkin raw??? I think I've only ever had it in something cooked!

I love it when I find someone else who doesn't STOP with pumpkin after October. I'm with everyone above, stir in for oatmeal, smoothies, pancakes, waffles, muffins! I love that you added something chocolately to it! Mark Bittman makes a simple oatmeal pancake where I stir in pureed pumpkin and change the flavors a bit. http://video.nytimes.com/video/2011/01/14/dining/1248069379409/cardamom-scented-oatmeal-pancakes.html

That looks good! Sometimes I wish I ate dairy just so I could try out Greek Yogurt.

I have a ton of pumpkin puree that needs to be used up too. Sweet potato puree too.

PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST!!! I'll post the recipe this week, just for you;) And pumpkin brownies are super yummy, just use your regular brownie recipe, subbing pumpkin for the oil and underbaking by 5 minutes...so gooey and delicious!! I can't wait to try your brownie cookies-ahhh! They look so good!

I love the idea of a pumpkin parfait - especially with chocolate in the mix :) Wish I could help with recipe ideas but I can't even find pumpkin in my local grocery stores now that the holidays are over, so pumpkin recipes aren't even on my radar these days!

I have a great recipe.. I found it in Oxygen magazine I believe.


So amazing and so creamy and good. You would never believe there was pumpkin puree in there :D

I urge you to make my pumpkin protein pudding (with or without the protein honestly... it's soooo good)

That parfait is beautiful! I would need to add something to the pumpkin though.. like some vanilla bean paste!
Also - I have so many pumpkin recipes. I just made pumpkin goat cheese biscuits, but those have gluten in them. I have a crustless pumpkin pie recipe that is so easy/healthy/delicious. I also have recipes for pumpkin pie smoothie, pumpkin pasta sauce, gorgonzola pumpkin bowl, pumpkin glazed scallops, pumpkin spiced chickpeas, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin scones with cream cheese glaze. They are all on my blog if you are interested! You can go to recipe page or just search in the search bar

Ok, you had me at pumpkin and then you went and threw that brownie in there! I'm drooling.

you can make pumpkin bread, or use it to replace the banana or applesauce in any baked good or smoothie. you can add tahini and warm water and thin it a bit to make a curried sauce over roasted veg. i <3 pumpkin!

Send a can pumpkin puree over here!
I can't find them in Belgium... :(

I eat a can of pumpkin every 2 days! I like it mixed with a crumbled gluten free graham cracker!

Kate (What Kate is Cooking) said... [reply]

Hell yes, I eat something like this almost every day :)

I love parfaits! That one looks amazing

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

Canned pumpkin is a staple in my diet! Open my fridge and you'll definitely find a tupperware container of it. In addition to making amazing pancakes and muffins, it's great for thickening soups and fluffly souffles. I also enjoy pumpkin butter, pumpkin risotto and pumpkin cookies!
