How To Enjoy Immune-Boosting Chicken Noodle Soup Jars

First, remove the microwave-safe safe mason jar from the fridge and fill it with room temperature water. Adding hot water to a cold jar could cause it to crack.

Seal the lid snugly, give it a good shake to blend the soup base, miso and water. Remove the metal lid, then pop the jar into the microwave for 2 minutes or until hot. Check the noodles. They should be so pliable and cooked through. If not, allow the jar to rest on the counter for a minute or two. 

If your jar is at room temperature, you can safely use boiling water and let it sit for 9-10 minutes to cook the noodles to perfection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this gluten-free?

Most rice noodles are gluten-free, but best check the package to be sure.

Can I make this vegan?

This recipe is easily adapted to a vegan diet. Simply leave out the chicken and replace it with a vegan protein of choice like tofu.

Can I use other vegetables in my soup jars?

Certainly! You have plenty of options to tweak your soup jars to your liking. Here are some tasty substitutions:
Instead of kale, consider using other leafy greens like chard, baby spinach, or even frozen spinach.
Swap out corn and sugar snap peas with thinly sliced peppers, broccoli, green beans, zucchini, shredded carrots, or a few dried mushrooms If you’re looking for a pantry-friendly option, frozen vegetables come to the rescue. You can add frozen spinach or a handful of frozen stir-fry veggies in place of the suggestions above. Just keep in mind that frozen vegetables may chill the boiling water, so you might want to give the jar a quick spin in the microwave to ensure everything’s heated through. Oh, and don’t forget to remove the metal lid before microwaving

Ingredients

Units

 

For the Sizzle Oil/Soup Base:

  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced spring onions
  • 40 ml neutral oil (peanut, canola)
  • 1 Tbsp chilli flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 5cm knob of ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Generous grind of black pepper
  • 12 limes (15ml of fresh lime juice)
  • For the Jars:
  • 5 Tbsp Miso paste
  • 200g Mixed bag baby corn and peas, or 150g mixed frozen vegetables
  • 1 cup/ 200g cooked shredded chicken or protein of choice like tofu
  • 100g (roughly a handful per jar) Kale or 60g frozen spinach
  • 100g rice noodles (roughly a small handful per jar)

Equipment


Instructions

  1. Prepare the Sizzle Oil/Soup Base. To make the base, grate the ginger and garlic into a bowl. Add chilli flakes and turmeric. Heat your chosen neutral oil until it’s piping hot, then pour it over the spices to create a fragrant chilli oil.
  2. Next stir in the spring onions and add a generous grind of black pepper. Cut the lime in half, then squeeze in all the juice.  This soup base will be enough for 5 jars. Pro tip: You can either divide it into ice trays and freeze it for use throughout the week or use it to prepare all 5 jars at once for a convenient meal prep.
  3. To make the jars, slice the sugar snap peas and baby corn finely, then shred the chicken or prepare your protein of choice.
  4. Assemble the Jars: To each jar, add a handful (20g) of rice vermicelli, breaking them in half if necessary to fit. Add 1/5 of the soup base, 1 tbsp miso, and a fifth of your corn, peas, shredded chicken, and kale.
  5. Repeat until all jars are filled with ingredients.
  6. Store the jars in the fridge where they will keep for 3-4 days.
    Note: The shelf life depends on when the chicken is cooked; cooked chicken can be kept in the fridge for 4 days.
  7. When ready to serve, remove a jar from the fridge. If serving straight from the fridge, remove the lid, fill with room temperature water, and microwave without the metal lid until hot and the rice noodles have softened.
  8. Stir well to combine the miso and soup base throughout the jar. If the soup base is tasting a little bland, you probably have a little blob of miso floating somewhere that needs to be stirred in.
  9. Season with more salt and pepper if needed and enjoy.Tip for Office Lunch: If the jar has come to room temperature, fill it with hot water and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the noodles to soften. Never pour boiling water into a cold jar to avoid cracking.
