This mason jar ramen recipe is one of my husband’s favorite lunches – and something I feel good making him.  We used to eat packaged Instant Ramen on days when we were sick or feeling too lazy to cook dinner.  

But I wouldn’t go back to the dry packaged stuff after making this tasty and flavorful mason jar Ramen Recipe – This soup is awesome!

This Low Sodium Ramen Recipe Is:

  • Light
  • Filling
  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free (if using rice noodles)
  • Versatile – swap out any veggies you have on hand
  • EASY to Meal Prep
  • EASY to cook… just add hot water and allow to sit for 5 minutes before eating

You won’t miss the salt with the great flavors in this soup!  There is bright lime juice, sesame oil, sunflower oil, and spicy sriracha for a kick.  And since there is such a wide array of veggies and tofu, it will keep you full!

What’s In This Mason Jar Ramen?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Tofu: I love adding tofu in this soup, as it’s a great and quick protein you don’t have to cook.
  • Noodles: I normally use Asian Vermicelli Rice Noodles for this, but I’ve also tried it with cooked angel hair pasta and it turned out amazing!
  • Veggies: I like carrots, corn, edamame, green onion, and some fresh herbs in mine… but you can swap anything you have on hand.
  • Sesame Oil: for an awesome toasted flavor, I use this sesame oil on more than just ramen; it goes into every stir fry I make!
  • Sriracha: just a hint of this sriracha to give this soup a brilliant spicy flavor!
  • Lime Juice: Brightens up the flavor and gives some great acidity

A No Cook Work Lunch, Just Add Water to this Ramen!

I love that there is no cooking time in this Low Sodium Ramen Recipe… add all the ingredients, and add hot water to heat.  The thin rice noodles cook in the water, and don’t need to be microwaved at all.  This is great for the office, as I can use hot water from the coffee machine, and pour it straight in the jar!

One of the BEST Pantry Staple Lunch Recipes

This vegan mason jar ramen recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal!  It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards (and you can substitute the frozen veggies for canned!).  You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand! 

Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and tasty meals using a few staples you can rotate.  I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep on hand.

Dietary Modifications

  • This soup is naturally vegan & vegetarian, but if you aren’t vegan and want to add some cooked meat instead of the tofu go for it.
  • This is gluten free, but if you aren’t avoiding gluten then you can swap whole wheat spaghetti instead of the rice noodles, and soy sauce for the tamari.
  • This is a low sodium recipe, and has a fraction of the salt of normal ramen!  If you aren’t low sodium and want to add a bit more soy sauce or tamari, then feel free to add!

By meal prepping this recipe, you can cook once and have perfectly portioned meals ready to go. I rely heavily on meal prepping and created a whole section of the site to recipes you can meal prep, batch cook, or make ahead.  Heat + eat, you’re all set!

Make Instant Ramen Vegan for a Plant-Based Version

This vegan low sodium ramen is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family.

  1. Could this be pressure canned for shelf life? If so what herbs/spices would you use for seasoning?
    Also, I would love to use frozen veggies instead of dehydrated ones, can find frozen easier. Could I substitute the corn for bell pepper or another veggie? Thank you so much.

    1. Hello Floyce,
      I am not sure on the pressure canning – I have never tried that for this recipe. I’d recommend sticking to a tested pressure canned soup recipe from Ball or another canning company.

      And yes, you can use frozen veggies in this soup instead of dehydrated, I use frozen corn and peas all the time – however, I add boiling water to top it off and have never canned with this soup before.


    1. 5 stars
      Hi Natasha – thanks for the question! I keep the airtight jars in the fridge for up to 3 days. I pull them out of the fridge, and add the hot water when I’m ready to eat. I usually meal prep a few at a time for an easy lunch.
