Step By Step  

A fun lunch hack to make lunchtime easy... and delicious.

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

For lunch or a snack attack, these little jars are at the ready.

Did you know you can DIY your own instant ramen noodles? You can, and it’s oh so easy (and oh so tasty, yeahhhh).

Let’s just call lunch what it is: Oftentimes, a brown bag of blah food.

That’s why I am so on board with the food-in-jars trend that’s alive and well right now: You can prep a salad, a smoothie or a soup in jars at the beginning of the week, and just grab a jar on your way out the door. Now you’ve actually got something to look forward to at lunchtime!

This recipe for chicken instant ramen noodles (inspired by this recipe from Serious Eats) is hands-down my fave food-in-jar recipe. I LOVE ramen noodles and have ever since I was a youth (but oy, with the sodium and the not-so-good-for-you stuff they pack in there).

 

Chicken and Dill Instant Ramen Noodles

This version is homemade and with fresh ingredients, but it’s just as easy to make as a packaged version. You can prepare as many or as few jars as you want in advance, store them for a few days and make soup as needed. Huzzah for great (and yummy) hacks!

First, you’ll need to par-boil the noodles. This helps them to actually cook well when you go to prep the soup for eating. All you need to do is boil a package of noodles (and discard the flavor packet) for about 1 minute, then drain and rinse the noodles under cold water to stop the cooking process. Divide the noodles among resealable glass canning jars and you’re ready to ramen and roll! Ahem.

Top the noodles with whatever ingredients you love – here, I added shredded cooked chicken, frozen peas, chopped green onions, sliced shallots, cut baby corn and a spoonful of chicken base plus a dash of S&P. But feel free to mix it up with your own favorite veggies and meats.

Chop up some fresh dill, place it in resealable storage bags and tuck each bag into the top of each jar. Keeping the herbs separate from the rest of the mix keeps them bright and fresh for when you make the soup. We want that flavah flav! (Psst – don’t love dill? Swap it for fresh parsley, chives, tarragon, etc.)

Seal the jars and store them in the fridge for up to 4 days.

When you’re ready for a yummy ramen lunch, remove the dill packet, pour in boiling water, reseal the jar for 3 minutes, add the dill and give it a stir.

Tips  

Swap dill for your favorite herb – fresh chives, parsley or tarragon all work well.

Add chopped cooked mushrooms, snap peas, bamboo shoots, carrot coins, etc. to the mix.
