Soup in a Jar
by Collette White | February 21, 2017
Good Afternoon friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope this finds you all well.
We are all pretty good here. My elderly Grandfather passed away yesterday morning, so it has been a sad time for my family. At his age though, it is nice to try and reflect on the positive of him having such a long life and giving thanks to the fact he is now resting in peace, as much as he will be missed.
I am popping by to share with you my hubbys favourite lunch. ‘Soup in a Jar’ – there is no real recipe for this, it really just depends on what you have in your fridge and pantry and what your particular tastes are. I have shown you here what my hubbys favourite is. I simply pack it all into the jar (jam it in nice and tight) the night before and he pops boiling water into it 5 minutes or so before wanting to eat it at work. My older girls have taken it to school before also (although in a thermos container, not a glass one, and I have given them a little thermos with the water). It is pretty simple, super tasty and something a little different. I hope you enjoy it!
Dried Shitake Mushrooms
Dehydrated Bone Broth
pinch salt and pepper
Cut all ingredients as thinly as possible and pack tightly into a glass jar.
Add boiling water 5 minutes before serving. Stir and enjoy.

- If you do use a glass container make sure it can withstand the boiling water
- If you don’t have dehydrated bone broth you can use stock paste or powder OR you can use bone broth instead of the water
- I try and cut the veg as small as possible so they cook through quickly
- The dried shitake mushrooms are available from the Asian section of most supermarkets or Asian Grocers
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
