Ramen In A Jar

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups salad shrimp thawed
  • 1 head bok choy sliced thinly, white parts reserved
  • 1 cup carrot grated
  • 1 inch fresh ginger minced
  • 8 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 pound Vietnamese brown rice noodles see notes
  • 8 cups vegetable broth no sugar listed in ingredients
  • Bragg Liquid Aminos optional, to finish the dish

Instructions

  • In 4 1-quart, heat-proof, sealable containers, such as Mason Jars, evenly divide the shrimp, bok choy, carrots, ginger, green onion, and uncooked noodles.
  • To store for up to 1 week, seal and place in refrigerator.
  • To cook, bring broth to a boil and pour 2 cups into each jar. Seal and let stand 5 minutes. Top with Bragg Liquid Aminos, if desired.

Notes

We used Annie Chung's Maifun Brown Rice Noodles for testing purposes.  The thinner noodle the better for these, as the thin noodles will cook quickly with only hot water.
Variations:
For chicken ramen: use 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken in place of the shrimp, and use chicken broth with no sugar added in place of the vegetable broth.
For Pork ramen: use 2 cups cooked and cubed pork tenderloin (perfect for leftovers) in place of the shrimp, and use either vegetable broth or chicken broth (no added sugar in either) for the broth.
For steak/beef ramen: use 2 cups cooked and cubed flank steak or sirloin steak in place of the shrimp, and use either beef broth or vegetable broth (no sugar added in either) for the broth.
For vegan/vegetarian ramen: omit the shrimp.  Add finely diced portobello mushrooms in place of the shrimp.
