These instant noodles are a healthier version of your favourite ramen – and they taste so much better! 

Excellent meal prep lunch option – assemble your mason jars ahead of time and when you’re ready to enjoy, all you have to do is pull the jar out of the fridge, add in the boiling water, let it sit then dig in!

Ingredients:

  • Miso paste – add in some extra soy sauce if you don’t have any miso paste.
  • Soy sauce – coconut aminos or tamari are the best soy sauce substitutes.
  • Chili garlic sauce – sriracha, Sambal Oelek or chilli paste would all help add some spice.
  • Shelled edamame – snap peas, green peas or fava beans would be good too.
  • Carrot – try adding in some shredded cucumber or diced celery instead.
  • Red pepper – use any colour bell pepper of your choice.
  • Red cabbage – napa cabbage or bok choy would also be yummy in these noodles.
  • Green onions – diced red or white onions can be used instead.
  • Cilantro – or another fresh herb like parsley or Thai basil.
  • Vegetable bouillon cubes – chicken bouillon cubes would also work here.
  • Ramen noodles – you can try using gluten-free ramen noodles as well.

Instructions:

Step 1: Add seasonings and veggies to a mason jar.

Add 1 tbsp each miso paste and soy sauce along with 1/2 tbsp chilli garlic sauce to the bottom of each 1 L mason jar, then add 1/2 cup edamame to each jar and divide veggies evenly among jars.

Step 2: Top with noodles.

Top with 1/2 a bouillon cube, then half of each ramen noodle packet.

Step 3: Add boiling water.

Store in the fridge for up to 6 days. When ready to serve, add boiling water overtop, filling almost to the top of the jar and let sit for 5 minutes. 

Step 4: Dump into a bowl and dig in!

Stir everything together, then pour into a bowl and serve and enjoy. If you’d like them a little hotter, microwave for 1-2 minutes after pouring in boiling water.
