What should I do with them? The can of tomato paste is only missing 2 tbsp, and I think there is a little over a cup of coconut milk left. Both need to be used in the next couple of days or will end up in the garbage, which I hate doing. Thanks ppk!

Why does it never occur to me to freeze things like leftover coconut milk? I hate throwing it away!

Note to self: remember there's a box on top of the fridge.

If I have left over coconut milk, I shove it into rice or quinoa. It is so quick and yummy.

If you don't end up using it up, definitely freeze! I put tablespoons of tomato paste on wax paper, freeze them, then once they're solid you can put them in a ziploc/tupperware.

That's great, thanks everyone!
I think I'll end up making curry with the coconut milk, and freezing the tomato paste as Dynahmite suggested - great idea since I only ever seem to use 1-2 tbsp at a time.

I wonder if you could make tomato soup by mixing the tomato paste with broth?

You can always freeze both, if you like as many have already said.

With the tomato paste, if you have Viva Vegan, you can make the Latin Baked Tofu. I believe it calls for only a small amount. I freeze tomato paste in 1 tbsp. measures (plop in tablespoon measures spread out a piece of wax paper in a cake pan or something that can fit in your freeszer a few hours, freeze till solid once frozen, pop in a freezer bag). I freeze leftover coconut milk in 1/2 cup measures and keep in old Tofutti containers.
