We're a little obsessive about getting every last bit out of a jar of peanut butter. Usually this means scraping it with a good spatula or simply eating it with a spoon, but last night we came up with a new idea…

Faced with the last dregs of peanut butter and a pan of steamed vegetables on the stove, we got inspired. We poured some coconut milk plus rice vinegar, soy sauce, maple syrup, and crushed garlic directly into the jar, shook it vigorously, and voilà: peanut dressing! It was scrumptious, fast, and frugal.

How about you? Do you eat every last bit ... or leave that to the dog?
