For any of the Instant Soup recipes:

  1. Layer all ingredients into a 20-24 oz mason jar.
  2. When ready to eat, fill jar with hot water to desired level (usually 2 to 2 1/2 cups to make it full, depending on mason jar used).
  3. Mix thoroughly and let the spices and vegetables sit for 1-2 minutes. Enjoy or save for later!
  4. Don’t have bone broth collagen? See notes.


  1. If you are using smaller, 12-16 ounce mason jars, you may only need 12-16 grams of bone broth. Divide the ingredients into 4-6 smaller jars, fill jar with hot water 3/4 full before serving.
  2. Don’t have bone broth collagen? Try using regular veggie or chicken broth versus water. You could also  or add in a scoop of regular dissolvable collagen powder for protein.
