  • What to do with all this canned pumpkin?

    Someone gave me about 10 cans of organic canned pumpkin. Now what in the world do I do with it? I make a bison/pumpkin chili but honestly we can only eat so much of that. What can I make that I can blend in some pureed pumpkin to get those awesome nutrients?

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        Canned pumpkin, simmered in (chicken) bone broth, with a bit of bacon. Yum, soup!

          *pumpkin smoothie
          *pumpkin porridge - from practical paleo, I don't remember the exact recipe - warmed up pumpkin puree, honey, coconut flakes, spices and I think almond butter
          *pumpkin pudding

            make a sauce of the pumpkin, thinned with a little stock/bone broth or cream, and fresh sage, add crumbled sausage, serve over zucchini noodles.

              Lately I've been having a big bowl of pumpkin for dessert. Pure pumpkin with lots of pumpkin pie spice and some stevia. I like to put it in the freezer for a little bit too so it's nice and cold.

                  Canned pumpkin + broth of choice + sauteed onions + "milk/cream" of choice + curry powder + sweetener of choice = easy pumpkin soup.

                  I like curry and sweet, but the sweetener could easily be left out. I also make this fairly thick, so be careful when it starts to boil because it pops and hot pumpkin soup burns like a mfer. Beef broth might have a bit too much flavor, so you can use chicken, veggie, or even plain water.

                      I love pumpkin curry, I use a curry flavour pack that is pretty paleo then mix in meat of choice and a great heaping amount of roughly chopped spinach. Nummies. OMG

                          My daughter eats pumpkin mixed with cinnamon and a little maple syrup, pumpkin mixed with plain yogurt before she found out she was intolerant to dairy. I make pumpkin "pie" I mix the pumpkin with two pastured eggs so possibly three store eggs. Then add cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, about a 1/4 tsp real salt or Himalayan salt, and the fat from a can of refrigerated coconut milk (we are dairy free I imagine heavy cream would work fine if you eat dairy) and then I use some maple syrup to taste. For crust I grind almonds or pecans, or walnuts. Mix with cinnamon and some melted butter. Place in pie pan and pour pumpkin over it. Bake at 350 degrees until it looks done.

                          We also used to regularly feed canned pumpkin to our senior dog. Our young dog gets it as a treat and to help add variety to his primal diet of raw foods. We always keep some on hand for the dog just in case it has a tummy issue seems to cure both diarrhea and constipation in dogs.

                            I second the idea of stirring it into chilis or stews. My non-primal husband complimented my last chili by saying, "I can't detect any vegetables at all i here." Little did he know!

                            My absolute favorite pumpkin recipe is the Blueberry Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf from Paleo OMG. PaleOMG – Paleo Recipes – Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf

                            I've made it so many times now that I experiment with it pretty freely. My last and favorite version was to omit the banana and increase the pumpkin to 3/4 C, substitute maple syrup to taste for the honey, and replace 1/2 C of almond meal with flax seed meal. Incidentally, after step 4, I add the vanilla cinnamon and sweetener. The result is a pumpkin cashew butter that is delicious in its own right.

                              I make "pumpkin pie" smoothies for a treat or dessert sometimes. Canned coconut milk, a little water, a few big spoonfuls of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla, and a little bit of stevia. Blend it all up and you have pumpkin pie in a cup!
