“Instant” Noodle Soup Jars

On my quest to have some handy and portable snacks for the kids, I wanted to do a remake of “ramen noodle bowls” (minus the plastic, chemicals, and expenses (there are some all natural and organic bowls available in the market)

I adapted our recipe from Super Healthy Kids  and some tips from my friend Kian who suggested I added seaweed and berries, which I was not sure the kids would go for, but they did! My kids love noodles and broth. Maybe they like their special bowls and chopsticks, but I just eat from the jar. I have also tried bean thread noodles and Chinese rice noodles. If you are given them as gifts and sharing with friends, I think it is pretty safe to say shelf life of about a month if you store your jars in your pantry since all ingredients are dried.

So here what goes into each jar:
1 ounce of noodles (your choice — we love soba (buckwheat). We also like rice vermicelli and bean thread noodles
1/2 cube of vegetable bouillon (organic without hydrogenated oils, msg, or coloring, etc) Check expiration date.
1/2 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
1 tsp dried seaweed (cut small)
goji berries
1/8 teaspoon spice combos your family may like to try
2 tablespoons of dried vegetables ( I mixed a variety pack with dried chives and dried parley in a bowl to make it easy to scoop out into the jars)

When ready for soup, add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water, stir well, cover and wait 5-7 minutes, which works well with thin soba noodles.
It is recommended to rinse soba noodles in cold water. You can do this extra step if you are home, but I just add hot water and really enjoyed the flavors.

    The jar is such a great idea!

  • […] “Instant” soup with noodles I confess. I love chefs. My mom loves rabbis. This affection for people in certain fields must be genetic. I’ve only met chef Ellie in passing, but I do feel like we’re kindred spirits in our thoughts about food. First there was the love of beans. Now she has a cleaner alternative to instant noodle soup. And it looks and sounds amazing. Nutritional yeast is one of the staples in our household, and the kids have just discovered a love for dried and roasted seaweed. While I haven’t tried this recipe yet, I’m really looking forward to putting it through the paces. […]

  • This is such a clever way of making your own instant noodles for work! Thanks so much for sharing :) We have that kind of “kettle tap” at work that has hot water, I imagine that’d work a treat for this, no microwaving necessary, which is a plus :) I hope you have a great day ^ ^
