As the days get cooler, my motivation to meal prep starts to drop with the temperature. I prefer quicker meal ideas and almost anything I can make prep a mason jar. Moms frequently ask me for quick meal prep ideas on the go, especially during the cooler months.
My go-to meals for cooler months are freezer meals, instant pot meals, and mason jar meals.
Mason jars can be used to prep soup and salads. You may want to stock up on your favorite mason jars this season and check out your favorite Pinterest boards for mason jar soup ideas.
Today I wanted to share my fave black bean and roasted veggie mason jar soup. It can be made in only 5 minutes! Prep this recipe ahead of time on a weekend and enjoy later in the week.
- 1/3 cup Black Beans
- 1/3 cup of Fresh Salsa
- 1/4 cup of Carrots
- 1/4 cup of Onion
- 1/4 cup of Red Pepper
- 1/4 cup of Roasted Corn
- 1/3 tsp of Ground Cumin
- Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Add all ingredients to a glass mason jar and store in the refrigerator up to five days until you are ready to cook. When ready to cook, add 3/4 cup of boiling water to mason jar. Next tighten the lid and shake. Let the ingredients sit in boiling water for five minutes. Finally, power your mason jar soup into a bowl. You can add toppings or spices. Avocado or guacamole is a great option for incorporating a healthy fat into your soup. Enjoy!
