Green tea soba noodles, or cha soba, are buckwheat noodles made with powdered green tea, which imparts a subtle grassy note and pretty color. You can find them in Japanese markets or online. Regular buckwheat soba noodles work just as well in this cup-of-noodles-style mason jar noodle soup.

  • 4 tablespoons white miso
  • 6 teaspoons mirin
  • 3 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1½ cups diagonally sliced snow peas (about 5 ounces)
  • 9 ounces peeled cooked shrimp
  • 1½ teaspoons dried wakame (see Tips)
  • 1½ cups cooked green tea soba noodles (from 3-4 ounces dried; see Tips)
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
  • 1 3-inch square dried kombu, snipped into 3 equal strips (see Tips)
  • 3 cups very hot water, divided


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Add 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon miso, 2 teaspoons mirin and 1 teaspoon vinegar to each of three 1½-pint canning jars. Layer ½ cup snow peas, 3 ounces shrimp, ½ teaspoon wakame and ½ cup noodles into each jar. Top each with 1 table-spoon scallions. Fit 1 piece of kombu between the ingredients and the side of each jar. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  2. To prepare each jar: Add 1 cup very hot water to the jar, cover and shake very well to dissolve the miso. Uncover and microwave on High in 1-minute increments until steaming hot, 2 to 3 minutes total. Discard the kombu. Stir to make sure the miso is dissolved. Let stand a few minutes before eating.
  • To make ahead: Prepare through Step 1. Refrigerate covered jars for up to 3 days.
  • Equipment: Three 1½-pint wide-mouth canning jars
  • Tips: An essential umami ingredient in Japanese dashi broth, kombu is dried kelp; wakame—another dried seaweed—is typically in miso soup. Find them in natural-foods stores and Asian markets. For ½ cups cooked noodles, start with 3 to 4 oz. dry. Boil the noodles about 1 minute less than the package directions so they are slightly underdone. Drain and rinse well with cold water before assembling in jars.
