Start your day by adding the purée to oatmeal, Greek yogurt, or cottage cheese, along with the sweetener of your choice and a dash of pumpkin pie spice, if you want a bit more pizzazz. Or blend it into a smoothie. It also makes a great addition to pancake and waffle batter, hounds say.
Pumpkin works well in savory dishes, too. Add it to risotto or mashed potatoes for a delicious side, or let it become the star of a main dish, such as a turkey, white bean, and pumpkin chili, which jujuthomas calls “awesome.”
