Pumpkin Soup Leftovers - Recommendation?

Hey everyone. I made a delicious pumpkin soup with sweet potatoes and coconut milk, among other ingredients, however we still have a little less than a liter of soup (not really enough to freeze, not much room in my small freezer). I am looking for possible uses for the remaining soup as I think both me and my girlfriend are a bit "souped out" after eating a bowl each for the past few days. One thought was to thicken it with more potatoes and use it as a pierogi/ravioli/cannelloni stuffing with some cream cheese. Other than this, I lack creative ideas. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Don't know how easy this would be but could you thicken it and make a cheesecake?

Or maybe a pumpkin pudding.

It might be a bit tricky, and am not a baker at all, but you might be able to use it as a base for some bread, or a cake.

Or a base as a curry dish.

Just a few thoughts. Enjoy.

That is too funny bowlingshirt!

What about using it as a sauce for pasta? Something with chicken? Maybe add some curry to it.

You could thicken it up a bit with cream cheese or mascarpone, add some sage & toasted walnuts or pine nuts - and use it as a pasta sauce over cheese ravioli etc.

All excellent ideas. I may actually use the opportunity to experiment with a few different things. If anything good comes out of this, will post. Thanks a bunch!

Use it as the base liquid for either polenta or grits.
