All you need is a carb base (aka noodles), veggies, and a stock base to give the broth an umami flavor. We’ll get into combinations in a bit.

steps on how to make mason jar ramen

How to make vegan mason jar ramen:

  1. Start with your broth base. (I use Better than Boullion)
  2. Layer the “wet” ingredients at the bottom. So any kimchi, cooked veggies, etc.
  3. Next, add noodles of choice
  4. Finally, top with leafy greens or toppings like green onions
  5. Seal up your mason jar and you are ready to go!

For those of you who have never heard of Better Than Bouillon, it is a stock paste. It is a personal kitchen staple for me and makes water taste like a savory stock in no time. Seriously… it’s a cooking game changer.
