You could make a smoothie with it- 1/2 cup puree, 1/2 cup milk (I use hemp), 1tbls honey, some ice or vanilla ice cream, and some spice.
Or add it to pancake batter. Or make spicy pumpkin soup.

I buy the larger cans and end up with half left for most recipes, too, so I put it in a ziplock and into the freezer.
You can add pumpkin to many things: breads, cookies, pancakes, etc.
SO, basically it's an entirely different recipe... and I use the whole can of pumpkin, but the recipe actually calls for half, I think.

Also delicious is what I call "pumpkin pie applesauce"--just mix about 2 to 3 parts applesauce to pumpkin puree and sprinkle in some cinnamon.
But the BEST recent discovery I've made is mixing pumpkin puree into oatmeal! Just add some raisins, cinnamon, and milk. YUM!!!
For a more savory option, this pumpkin quiche is a staple in our house and only calls for one cup of pumpkin puree. I usually make a whole-wheat crust with ground-up cheese and hazelnuts in it, then serve the quiche about an hour after I take it out of the oven with a salad on the side - hazelnuts and dried cranberries in the salad go great, with a mustard vinaigrette.
It was freshly baked pumpkin puree, though, not out of a can.
And I've had three pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for dessert. So far.
