NOODLE POT JARS


Forget calorie loaded on-the-go food court noodle boxes, and say hello to noodles in mason jars! Quick, easy and delicious – noodle pot jars combine my two favourite things: food AND aesthetics.

I’m absolutely obsessed with mason jars (perf for drinks AND food!) so when I heard about noodle pot jars I was immediately hooked.

All you have to do is layer a few ingredients - it’s basically a way healthier version of instant noodles, and you can experiment with so many different flavours. 

All you need is a base like quinoa, rice, beans or noodles; flavours like sea salt, garlic, onion, herbs & spices, and top off with raw or cooked veggies. Pour in your boilig water and there you have it - an instant, delicious and nutritious meal quicker than you can say mason jar!

If you're in need of some cute mason jars to make these gorg noodle pots with you can shop my faves in our SWIISH store here, but be quick as stocks are selling fast and our May edit is almost over!!!

See below for some of our fave recipes - such a lunchtime hit in the SWIISH office.
