Soup Jar Recipe

Updated: Jun 5

This is a great meal prep recipe to make ahead to enjoy during the week. It makes four 16 oz. jars, but if you want to make a big batch for the family, just mix it all in a pot so it is easier to serve. You prepare the jars by adding the soup base ingredients first, followed by your thinly sliced veggies, and lastly the noodles.  Just add hot water and it’s ready to go! 


  • 4 16 oz. storage jars 

From Marketplace:

  • 2 cups carrots from Josi Farms, thinly sliced

  • 4 stalks bok choy from Fawcett Creek

  • 2 green onion stalks from Fawcett Creek, thinly sliced

Other Ingredients:

  • 4 servings quick cook noodles

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 2 cups bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup shelled edamame

Soup base:

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce

  • 4 tbsp miso paste

  • 4 tsp sriracha

  • 4 tsp sesame oil

  • 4 tsp Better than Bouillon chicken soup base 

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 2 tsp garlic powder


  1. To each 16 oz. glass jar, add the soup base ingredients as follows:

    1. 1 tbsp soy sauce

    2. 1 tbsp miso paste

    3. 1 tsp sriracha

    4. 1 tsp sesame oil

    5. 1/4 tsp grated ginger

    6. 1/2 tsp garlic powder

    7. 1 tsp Better than Bouillon chicken soup base (or 1 chicken bouillon cube)

  2. Use a small whisk or fork to mix until all the ingredients are well combined into a brown paste.

  3. Divide the remaining ingredients and add them to the jar. Begin with the chicken/protein and proceed with the carrots, peppers, edamame, bok choy, green onions and cilantro. Add the sturdier vegetables first, then finish with the delicate herbs.

  4. Add a serving of quick-cook noodles into each jar. Seal the jars with a lid and refrigerate.

  5. When ready to serve, remove the jars from the fridge and let them sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes. This step is very important so that the jars do not crack from a quick temperature change. Slowly pour in boiling hot water then close the lid and give the jar a good shake. Make sure the lid is securely fastened so the hot liquid doesn't pour out as you shake. Use oven mitts as needed as the jar may be hot to the touch. Let the jars sit for 10 minutes then open and use chopsticks or a fork to stir and ensure the soup base has fully dissolved.

  6. Enjoy the noodle soup directly out of the jar or transfer to a bowl.
