Default Pumpkin side dishes ?

Any clever ways of serving canned pumpkin? It is such a nutrient dense
low calorie veg and I like to eat it several times per week. I just
looked it up on the USDA website and it contains all the amino acids
plus so many vitamins, good fiber (2.7 Gm per 1/2 cup) for very few
calories. Tonight I served it with salt, pepper, equal sweetner and
cut up raw apple for texture. I've mixed it with a baked sweet potato
and also with carrots and also frozen squash. The flavor is rather
bland so I'm looking for tasty ideas.

I recently made Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip cookies that tasted quite
nice! They stayed kind of moist... but really good.

Google on

"canned pumpkin" recipe

for a flock of references. Here's one:

('though my pop-up blocker dinged like a car alarm)

Looks like with canned pumpkin you're pretty much restricted to bread,
muffins, pies, etc. There's an Afghan recipe for fresh pumpkin I've
had that is very good:

I have a black bean soup recipe that has pumpkin in it, and it's very good.
Email me if you want it.

I had really good baked baby sugar pumpkin as a side (eaten like an acorn
squash, with butter and brown sugar and maple syrup inside). Only problem is,
you have to make it when the sweet little sugar pumpkins are peaking.
Unless...someone out here knows how to get 'em year round?
