Homemade Cup Of Noodles

Directions

  1. Divide Stock Base and Flavor Boost between three microwaveable pint-size jars with lids. Layer with Protein, Noodles, and Vegetables, in that order. Place lids on jars. Store in the refrigerator 3 to 5 days.
  2. Tote in a lunch bag with a freezer pack. Before heating, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes or run warm water over the jar for a minute or so to warm slightly. Nearly fill the jar with water (about 1 1/4 cups water) and microwave, uncovered, 2 minutes*. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir to combine.

From the Test Kitchen

*Note

If you don't have a microwave, place the jar in a bowl. Fill the bowl around the jar with boiling water. Fill the jar nearly full (about 1 1/4 cups water) with boiling water. Let stand 5 minutes.

Stock Base

Choose from 1 tablespoon beef stock base, chicken stock base, or vegetable stock base (such as Better Than Bouillon)

Flavor Boost

Choose one or two: 1 1/2 teaspoons lime, lemon, or orange zest; 3/4 teaspoons chili powder; 3/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning; 3/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning; 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay® seasoning; 1 tablespoon soy sauce; 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce; 2 tablespoons white miso paste; 2 tablespoons rice vinegar; 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger; 2 cloves minced garlic; 1 tablespoon snipped fresh herbs (dill weed, cilantro, chives, sage, parsley)

1) Lemon Chicken: chicken stock base, lemon zest and dill weed, chicken , linguini, spinach and mushrooms. 2) Cajun Sausage: chicken stock base, Cajun seasoning, cooked sausage, farfalle, corn, broccoli slaw, and green onions 3) Shrimp bowl: vegetable stock base, Old Bay® seasoning, shrimp, angel hair, broccoli slaw and mushrooms 4) Meatball Mac: beef stock base, chili powder, meatballs, shell pasta, peas and corn or peas and carrots 5) Dilly Eggs: chicken stock base, dill weed, hard cooked eggs, spaghetti, peas and carrots and spinach 6) Edamame-Mushroom: chicken stock base, miso paste, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, edamame, rice noodles, snow peas, shiitake mushrooms 7) Teriyakl: beef stock base, teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic, chicken, ramen noodles, bok choy, carrots

Since I found this recipe, I have been making noodle jars every 3 or 4 days. I love the variety that we can make a simple lunch to be different every day. The filled jars keep 5 days in the fridge. I make them in wide mouth Ball pint jars.

they are WECK jars - they are canning jars from Europe. kinda pricey - Ball would work as well, readily available and not as expensive. You can get Weck jars on Amazon way cheaper than you can at Hobby Lobby or any craft store. They are OUTRAGEOUS on all their jars. (Ball jars cost about $10/doz at groceries, big box, farm stores, etc. they are about $3 EACH at craft stores for the same jar - that's $36/dozen!!!!)
