Robin Joss, owner of Big Red Kitchen introduced us to Mason Jar Meals a few years ago. Robin’s blog contains hundreds of family-friendly Mason Jar Meal ideas & recipes

There are a lot of reasons we love Mason Jar Meals, but these top the list:

  • Lunch packing is suddenly a pleasant experience!
  • Mason jars are dishwasher safe, reusable, and they make your food look yummy!
  • Portion control is easy to manage.
  • No more mismatched plastic containers that overtake your kitchen cabinet.
  • Food waste is reduced when you can see exactly what’s in your fridge.

Want to learn more? You’ll find everything you need to know about Mason Jar Meals here.

A big thanks to Robin for sharing some really great recipes at the PA Farm Show. We are featuring the two Cuppa Noodle Soup recipes below, and Robin is sharing the recipe for a Roasted Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad over on her blog. You will also have a chance to win your own Mason Jar Meal Kit at the end of the post. The giveaway is over, but you can make your own Mason Jar Meal Kit see what’s included below.CuppaNoodlewithText

Chicken Cuppa Noodles – from Robin Joss, Big Red Kitchen

For each 1 pint/.5 liter jar you will need:
2 sheets of ramen noodles, each the size of a deck of cards. Do not break them up
1/3 cup roasted chicken, diced. Tip: 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs will fill 6 jars. Or to save time, use a rotisserie chicken.
1/3 cup mixed frozen vegetables – carrots, green beans, peas, and corn
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. dried parsley flakes or 2 tsp. fresh
1/8  tsp. black pepper

Layer the ingredients in pint jars in the order above. Screw the lids on and store in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 1 month. When you are ready to eat the soup, fill the jar with cold water to the base of the neck of the jar. Microwave on high heat for 2.5 minutes. Cover and let rest 2 minutes. Stir and eat. Caution, these are hot! TIP: Slip the jar into a cozy to protect your hands from the hot jar.

Asian Cuppa Noodles from Robin Joss, Big Red Kitchen

For each 1 pint/.5 liter jar you will need:
Angel hair rice noodles the size of 2 decks of cards. Using a pair of scissors is the easiest way to cut the noodles the right size.
1/3 cup-roasted chicken, diced. Tip: 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs will fill 6 jars. Or to save time, use a rotisserie chicken.
1 tbsp. sliced green onions – greens only
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/8 tsp. toasted sesame oil – always store in fridge
1/4 tsp. ginger powder, or 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp. sriracha
*salt to taste

Layer the ingredients in pint jars in the order above. Screw the lids on and store in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 1 month. When you are ready to make, fill the jar with cold water to the base of the neck of the jar. Microwave on high heat for 2.5 minutes. Cover and let rest 2 minutes. Stir and eat. Caution, these are hot! TIP: Slip the jar into a cozy to protect your hands from the hot jar.

If you like a little crunch with your soup, use a BNTO to pack some crackers inside the jar. The BNTO sits right inside the jar keeping your crackers nice and crispy. Before you add water to the soup, just remove the BNTO.

Remember to use glass safely:
Do not pour boiling water in a cold or frozen jar.
Do not freeze with water in jars.

    I love storing things in my empty canning jars (mixes, paperclips, nails, etc.) and making salads in them and baking mini pies in them to take to work. This would be so wonderful! Have never seen the BNTOs before – how absolutely wonderful!

  5. Posted February 11, 2015 at 12:02 pm | Permalink

    I think I’d like the Asian noodles. We love the combo of soy sauce and sesame oil (actually combined with rice vinegar, too) so this sounds like something my family would enjoy.

    I absolutely love the quality of the bento- I have to admit that besides storing my tuna salad in one and salad on the bottom. I have used these for crafting as well. I take my projects along with me all contained in this set up. Brads in the top and material strips in the bottom. Nothing spills and it stands upright- and easy to pack up and go. Thanks for the great recipes!!!!!

    I do prepare meals in jars, and even baked desserts in jars. We’re especially fond of my sugar free pies in half-pints! To look further down the weather-laden road here in Florida, we have to have supplies for hurricane season, and I now have a few, but will soon have many more, dehydrated meals in jars to use in an emergency. They also make excellent fare for those days when we’ve had to be gone all day but don’t want to eat out. Even if the power goes out, I have a little alcohol-burning camp stove that I can heat water on and give us a hot, comforting meal. I dehydrate food year ’round, and it is easy to pack several vegetables into some Ramen packets or my own dry chicken noodle soup. I am thinking about offering a short course to my fellow retirement community residents in this method of feeding oneself and others who need a little help from time to time. To some it is convenience food; to those in need, it is life-saving nutrition in an easy-to-prepare container.

    These jars sound very interesting. I would begin with chicken noodle soup.

    I would like to try the soup recipes. I’ve been canning for years and never thought about meals in a jar! That’s a big DUH! lol

    I pack my husband’s lunch every day. These containers open up so many options! ALL the recipes will be tried, trust me! My husband would appreciate the variety, but I think he would especially liek the roasted sweet potato and chickpea salad.
