Mason Jar Noodles Recipe: This Viral Food Trend Is a Fun Meal Prep Recipe

Thanks to NutritionByKylemason jar noodles have gone viral. "This combines two things: my love for noodles and my need for an easy meal during the busy week!" she writes on Instagram. "Not only does this meal include everything you need, but it’s fully customizable."

You can change up the vegetables, noodles and protein to fit your tastes. Shrimp or roasted pork would be delicious! Add chopped parsley or mint instead of cilantro. Use ramen noodles instead of rice noodles. Raw onion, green onion, finely chopped broccoli, green peas or corn would be wonderful in this meal-prep recipe. Get creative!

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To the mason jar, add the soy sauce, oyster sauce and chicken base. 
  2. Top with the vegetables, chicken, noodles and garnishes. (Make sure to keep the noodles and base separate so noodles stay dry.)
  3. If eating immediately, add boiling or hot water to the glass and cover. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Shake the jar (you can use a towel since the glass will be hot) or turn your jar upside down to let the base mix with the water. Store prepped jars in the refrigerator up to four days. 


  • Be sure to bring the mason jars to room temperature before pouring in hot water to prevent them from breaking due to thermal shock.
  • To reduce the sodium, use reduced sodium versions of Better Than Bouillon and low-sodium soy sauce. 
  • You can substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce if you need to limit sodium.
