Meal Prep Noodle Soup Jars

These easy meal prep noodle soup jars are a fast, convenient, and budget-friendly make-ahead lunch idea. Just add hot water, mix, and enjoy!

The post Meal Prep Noodle Soup Jars appeared first on Budget Bytes.

January is the season when meal prep reigns. Whether you’re just trying to get more organized or trying to refine your food budget, these meal prep noodle soup jars are a great option for make-ahead lunches. I took my favorite upgraded instant ramen recipe and transformed it into these cute and convenient meal prep jars. Just add hot water, mix, and they’re ready to eat! Bonus, the jars kept the soup ingredients super fresh for several days with NO wilting!

Noodle soup jars lined up in a row, viewed from the side.

What is a Meal Prep Soup Jar?

These cool little jars are basically like homemade cup noodles, except with more delicious add-ins and in a reusable container. You just add hot water to the jar, mix it up to make the broth and soften the veggies, then the soup is ready to eat! So easy and so convenient.

What’s in This Noodle Soup

Similar to our upgraded instant ramen, we made our own flavored broth concentrate with a mix of Better Than Bouillon, soy sauce, sesame oil, and spices. Then we added some fresh vegetables (mushrooms, spinach, carrots, and green onions) to round out the bowl, and a little sesame seeds and sriracha for fun. These soup jars are, of course, endlessly customizable, so feel free to add your favorite ingredients!

How to Enjoy meal prep soup jars

Just like with cup noodles, fill the jar with boiling water from a tea kettle or a hot water tap (the kind on the front of commercial coffee makers), close the lid tightly, then shake the jar to mix the bouillon with the water. Let the soup sit for a few minutes to slightly cook the vegetables and soften the noodles. Give it one last stir with a fork or spoon (or spork!) and enjoy! You can eat the soup straight out of the jar, or empty it into a bowl.

How Long Do They Last?

There’s some sort of magic that happens in this mason jar that keeps the ingredients fresh far longer than I would have ever expected. For food safety reasons I don’t suggest keeping these jars longer than five days, but I will just tell you that on day five the ingredients in the soup jars looked just as fresh as they did on day one. The spinach and mushrooms showed no signs of wilting and the noodles had not dried out!

To maximize the lifespan of your noodle jars, pay attention to how you layer the ingredients. The wet ingredients always go on the bottom. Next, you add ingredients that don’t wilt easily and aren’t too absorbent (in this case the carrots, then the mushrooms). Lastly, you’ll want to add any ingredients that tend to wilt or get mushy (noodles and spinach). This layering technique separates the liquids and soft ingredients for maximum storage life!

Welcome to the decadent meal I dream about every late December, when I want even simple foods to feel festive. Yes, I am seriously making the argument that baked brie should be a dinner dish. Or, if not dinner, maybe a luxe part of it, so perfect for this blustery, celebratory time of year. For dinner you might eat this with a big green salad and a cup of soup. You might set this out as a side dish with a big roast. You might put it out as part of a party spread too, an oasis of savory among all of the cookies and molten cakes.

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

Turkey and Wild Rice Soup is a great way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers, plus the leftovers are great so it’s the perfect meal prep!

The post Turkey and Wild Rice Soup appeared first on Budget Bytes.

Have you eaten all of your Thanksgiving leftovers yet?? If not, here’s an amazing soup that you can make with that leftover turkey, and any leftover vegetables you may have laying around from all that Thanksgiving prep a few days ago. This Turkey and Wild Rice Soup is rich, flavorful, and just packed with goodies. Plus, it’s one of those soups that tastes even better the next day, so make a pot of this and you’ll be eating GOOD for the next few days!

Overhead view of a bowl of turkey and wild rice soup on a wood surface.

What’s in Turkey and WIld RIce Soup

This recipe is actually based on the filling for my chicken pot pie recipe, but I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey instead and made it a little thinner to be more soup-like.

It starts with a basic medley of vegetables (onion, garlic, carrot, celery, and mushrooms) sautéed until tender, then we add a combination of butter and flour that will help thicken the soup and give it body. Next, we add vegetable broth, herbs, and the wild rice blend, and simmer until the rice is tender. Finally, we add in the cooked chopped turkey, heat through, then add a dose of cream for a rich finish. 👌 Perfect!

Do I Have to Use Turkey?

This recipe is quite flexible, so if you want to make it any other time of the year other than after Thanksgiving, simply swap out the cooked turkey with some chopped rotisserie chicken! Still super delish and hearty!

Overhead view of turkey and wild rice soup in the pot with a ladle.

What Kind of Rice to Use

For this soup, you’ll want to use a wild rice blend. While you can use wild rice by itself, I find that using a blend of different rices adds more texture and color to the bowl and the rice blends tend to be more affordable than wild rice by itself. I used Lundberg’s Wild Blend, but you can sometimes find generic store versions of this, depending on where you shop (last year ALDI had some). And, since rice is shelf stable, you can save the leftovers to use in other recipes, rather than worrying about it going to waste.

How to Store Leftovers

Refrigerate this soup just after cooking so that it cools quickly. Even better yet, divide it into single servings for faster cooling and easier serving and reheating later. Chill completely in the refrigerator overnight, then, if desired, transfer it to the freezer for longer storage. The soup can be reheated in the microwave or in a pot on the stove over medium-low, stirring often, until hot.

How to Make Turkey and wild rice soup – Step by Step Photos

Carrot, onion, celery, and garlic in the soup pot.

Dice one yellow onion, slice 2 carrots, slice 3 ribs of celery, and mince two cloves of garlic. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic to a large soup pot with 1 Tbsp butter. Sauté over medium heat until the onions are soft.

Sliced mushrooms added to the pot.

While the vegetables are sautéing, slice 8 oz. mushrooms. Add them to the pot and continue to sauté until the mushrooms have softened.

Butter and flour added to the pot.

Add 4 Tbsp butter and ¼ cup flour to the pot. Continue to stir and cook for about one minute more. The flour and butter will form a paste that will coat the vegetables, that is okay.

Wild rice blend and herbs added to the pot.

Add ½ tsp dried thyme, ½ tsp rubbed sage, ¼ tsp pepper, and ½ cup wild rice blend to the pot.

Vegetable broth being poured into the pot.

Add 4 cups of vegetable broth. Stir to combine and dissolve all of the flour and butter off of the vegetables and the bottom of the pot.

Simmered soup in the pot.

Place a lid on the pot, turn the heat up to medium-high, and allow the soup to come to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low and let it simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the wild rice is tender.

Chopped turkey being poured into the pot.

Once the rice is tender, add 2 cups of chopped cooked turkey (or chicken) and stir to combine. Allow the turkey to heat through in the soup.

Cream being stirred into the soup.

Finally, to make the soup extra lush, stir in a ⅓ cup heavy cream.

Finished soup in the pot with a spoon.

Taste the soup and add salt to your liking (I added ½ tsp). Keep in mind that adding a little salt really helps the different flavors pop!

Mushroom Galette

A Couple Cooks – Recipes worth repeating.

This hearty mushroom galette is a tasty savory tart recipe bursting with flavor! This vegetarian dinner idea will wow everyone.

Mushroom galette

Looing for a stunning fall or winter vegetarian dinner idea? Try a savory Mushroom Galette! This free-form French tart isn’t just for dessert. Make it with a savory filling and it’s a fun vegetarian main dish, like a quiche. This one stars meaty mushrooms, layered over a fluffy smear of ricotta and Parmesan cheese and scented with garlic and fresh thyme. It’s all packed into a flaky, buttery crust and baked to perfection. The smell alone had us salivating before the first bite. Ready to bake?

Ingredients for this mushroom galette

galette is a rustic French tart: a round pie made without a pie dish using a folded pastry crust. That’s right: no pie plates or precise rolling and cutting! Simply roll out the dough, add filling and fold over the crust. Galettes are most often served as desserts, like a peach galette or blueberry galette. But they work as savory pies too, like a tomato galette or mushroom galette. Here’s what you’ll need for this mushroom galette recipe:

  • Mushrooms: a mix of cremini (baby bella) and shiitakes makes for a nuanced, complex flavor
  • Olive oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried thyme
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic
  • Fresh thyme
  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Egg
Mushroom Galette

Tips for working with galette dough

The main part of this mushroom galette that takes a bit of technique? The pastry dough! Now, this galette dough is easy to work with, but there are a few things to keep in mind when making the pastry. Here are a few tips:

  • Weigh the flour in grams (or spoon and level it). Weighing your flour on a food scale in grams provides the most accurate measurement (and it’s less messy, we find!) Or you can spoon the flour into the measuring cup, then level it with the back of the spoon. This is more accurate than scooping flour right out of the container, which can result in more flour per cup.
  • Add just enough water for the dough to come together. It should take around 5 to 6 tablespoons, but maybe slightly more depending on the exact flour amount.
  • Chill 1 hour. Chilling is important, so that the butter can solidify. Otherwise, the crust can melt in the oven.
  • Roll into a 12-inch circle, then add the filling. Flour your work surface first. Pick up the dough and add more flour to the surface as necessary if it’s sticking. Then add the ricotta filling and mushrooms.
  • Gently fold it up to create a 2-inch crust. Overlap the folds to make a circle around the filling: see the photos.

For the egg wash

Before baking this mushroom galette, it’s important to brush the crust with an egg wash and sprinkle with salt. An egg wash makes a nice golden sheen on the crust. Full disclosure: we were out of eggs and had to brush on heavy cream to the crust for these photos (a substitute for an egg wash). You can tell it doesn’t have quite the sheen as the crusts in our other galette recipes! So an egg wash is the way to go.

Mushroom Galette

Serving this mushroom galette

Once you bake up your mushroom galette, don’t dig into it just yet! The cooling time is important for achieving the best texture. Here’s what to know:

Storage info

Got leftovers of this mushroom galette? Place it in a storage container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. You can also make it 1 day in advance: bake it, then refrigerate over night. Before serving, leave it out on the counter for about 30 minutes to let it come to room temperature. If desired, reheat it in a 350 degree oven until warmed through.

Mushroom Galette


Description

This hearty mushroom galette is a tasty savory tart recipe bursting with flavor! This vegetarian dinner idea will wow everyone.


Ingredients

For the galette dough 

  • 1 ½ cups [210 grams] all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 egg, for the egg wash
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling

For the filling

  • 16 ounces cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to sprinkle
  • ¾ cup whole milk ricotta
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, for topping

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, kosher salt, and baking powder. Slice the butter into small pieces, then use a pastry blender or fork to cut it into the flour mixture until mostly incorporated and a pebbly texture forms (with pea-sized or smaller pieces).
  2. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of the cool water over the flour, mixing gradually with a fork until the flour is mostly incorporated. Add the additional 1 to 2 tablespoons of water until all the flour is incorporated, kneading with your fingers until the dough comes together. (Resist the urge to add more water; it should come together!) Form the dough into a ball and flatten into a thick disk. Wrap it in plastic or place it in a covered container and chill the dough for 1 hour. (To make in advance, you can refrigerate the dough up to 3 days; allow to sit at room temperature 30 minutes before rolling. Or, wrap in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze up to 3 months, then defrost overnight in the refrigerator before rolling.)
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Clean and slice the mushrooms. Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, thyme, and ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Place them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes until tender.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and a few grinds black pepper. 
  6. On a floured surface, roll the dough into an even 12” circle, leaving the edges rough (if needed, move the dough around and add a bit more flour underneath to keep it from sticking). Carefully transfer the dough to a sheet of parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet. 
  7. Gently spread the ricotta mixture on the dough, then add the mushrooms, leaving at least 2 inches of dough around the outside edge. Fold in the outside edges of the dough over the filling to form an approximately 2-inch crust, overlapping the folds as shown in the photos. Top with fresh thyme leaves.
  8. Whisk the egg and use a pastry brush to brush it onto the crust. Then top the crust with a small sprinkle of flaky sea salt. 
  9. Bake the galette for 30 to 33 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer the parchment paper to a baking rack to cool. Cool for at least 10 minutes, then slice into pieces and serve. It’s also great at room temperature or cold. Store leftovers for up to 3 days refrigerated; bring to room temperature or warm in the oven before serving.
