How to Make Miso Noodle Soup Jars
This is the true beauty of this recipe, it could not be easier to make. Simply layer all of your ingredients among your mason jars. Begin with your sauces and seasonings, layer in your veggies and finally top with your noodles. Store, air-tight in mason jars in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
When you are ready to prepare your soup jar, empty the contents into a bowl. Boil a cup of water and add to the bowl along with the contents. Stir and serve.
Do Miso Noodles contain gluten?
Miso noodles can contain gluten depending on the type of noodles used. Typically, miso noodles are made from wheat flour and therefore contain gluten. However, some brands may offer gluten-free options made from rice flour or other gluten-free grains. It’s important to check the label or ingredient list of the specific brand you’re considering to determine whether or not it contains gluten. If you have a gluten allergy or intolerance, it’s important to choose a gluten-free option to avoid any adverse reactions.
Can Miso Noodles Soup be made in advance?
Yes! And, that is truly the point of this recipe. This soup takes minimal prep time and is perfect to make on the weekend to have lunches ready all week long. The jars, when sealed air tight, and refrigerated will last 4-5 days.
What is Kimchi?
Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made from fermented vegetables, typically napa cabbage, radish, or cucumber, and a variety of seasonings such as chili peppers, garlic, ginger, and fish sauce. It has a spicy, tangy, and slightly sour flavor and is often used as a side dish or condiment.
Kimchi has a long history in Korean cuisine and is considered a staple food in Korean households. It is also widely enjoyed in other parts of the world, and has gained popularity due to its unique flavor and numerous health benefits, such as being a good source of probiotics, vitamins, and minerals.
What is Sriracha?
Sriracha is a type of hot sauce that originated in Thailand. It is named after the coastal city of Si Racha, where it was first produced. Sriracha sauce is made from a combination of chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. It has a thick, slightly sweet, and tangy flavor with a moderate level of heat.
Sriracha sauce gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world due to its unique flavor and versatility. It can be used as a condiment for a variety of foods, including noodles, stir-fries, sandwiches, burgers, and even as a dip for chips or vegetables. It is also commonly used as an ingredient in marinades, dressings, and sauces.
