A nearly empty jar of Peanut Butter.
Transform A Nearly Empty Peanut Butter Jar Into A Perfect Noodle Pairing

Martha Stewart once made a vinaigrette with the last bit of mustard out of a near-empty jar, and this same technique can make use out of a near-empty peanut butter jar.

Peanut noodles are a classic in Asian cuisines, and you can make them even if you only have a tiny bit of peanut butter. Start by adding hot water or broth to the jar.

Start with two tablespoons to avoid a runny sauce, adding more liquid as needed. Loosen the peanut butter from the sides with a fork and mix until it forms a sauce.

The sauce will taste delicious with cooked noodles, but the dish can also be turned into sesame noodles by adding ground ginger, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, and fish sauce.

Add these extra ingredients to the peanut butter jar and shake to mix, then toss the sauce with warm noodles. Garnish with sliced carrots, cucumbers, red cabbage, and sesame seeds.
