Mason Jar Recipes You'll Want to Take Everywhere
Asian Vegetable and Tofu Soup
Forget having miso soup delivered to the office or heating up a sad packet of instant ramen—this homemade alternative is a fresh take on a traditional soup in a cup. Bring this mason jar to work and just add boiling water. While this recipe includes snap peas and bean sprouts, any crunchy veggies will do.
Asian Slaw with Honey Ginger Dressing
This slaw is an awesome upgrade from a #saddesksalad. The sweet honey ginger dressing is perfect for this jar meal or any Asian-inspired salad. For a bit of a kick, you can also try sprinkling a few hot pepper flakes or your favorite hot sauce on top.
Santa Fe Rice Bowl
This veggies-and-rice dish is a great alternative to a fast-food burrito bowl—and healthier because it's homemade. Add leftover chicken, pork, or beef to up the protein and stay full for even longer.
Souvlaki Dinner Bowl
By ditching the potatoes, this traditional Greek dish makes an easy transition from bowl to jar. When dinner-to-go is your only option, this mason jar recipe will still satisfy your cravings for a real meal while still offering you the convenience your busy schedule needs.
Paella, the national dish of Spain, is made with rice, chorizo, shrimp, and chicken. This recipe is a deconstructed version, using similar flavors and layering them for a comfort-food meal that tastes exotic.
Cute Key Lime Pies
If you can't grab key lime juice, try grated key lime zest or Persian lime juice to get the same tangy-sweet flavor in these tiny jarred pies. Constructed in mini jars, they're perfect to bring to a summer picnic or backyard barbecue.
No-Bake Raspberry Tart
Bring this tart to work as an afternoon snack or enjoy for an individual (and adorable) dessert. With the sweet ingredients already divided into perfect portion sizes, you don't have to worry about feeling stuffed. You can even swith up your fruit choice and top it with blueberries, blackberries, or sliced strawberries.
