Mason Jar Ramen Meal Prep

The first thing you need to make mason jar ramen meal prep is good mason jars. 16-ounce mason jars work really well, but if you decide to supplement with more ingredients, you may want to use a larger jar.

My recipe preps three jars at 1x, so if you decide to double the recipe, you need at least 6 16-ounce mason jars.

Wide-mouth mason jars work best because of the way they are shaped. They are the easiest to eat out of.

Mason Jar Miso Ramen with Turmeric and Coconut

The main ingredient in my mason jar miso ramen is the flavor base made with miso, kimchi, turmeric, and coconut cream. When you add boiling water to the meal prep jar, the flavor base dissolves, forming a delicious, creamy broth.

Adding Protein to Meal Prep Ramen

This ramen is a light meal on its own. It’s essentially a healthy version of a cup of noodles that comes in that styrofoam container.

If you want to add more protein to this meal prep, use a bigger mason jar and add any cooked protein you like. Some great options include seared tofu and rotisserie chicken.

If you do decide to add meat, you should only store the ramen for five days in the fridge.
