Not only is a mason jar lunch quick and convenient, but it’s also super cute! Ever since I first heard of this concept, I have loved preparing my lunch in a mason jar. It just brings a little bit of charm to lunchtime. I’m sure there are tons of different options for a mason jar lunch, but I always find myself resorting to this one simple recipe, so I thought I’d share it.

Here’s my mason jar lunch recipe (start with the first item listed):

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • a dash of salt and pepper
  • a sprinkle of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1/8 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh mozzerella
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 handful of thoroughly washed arugula

To eat it, simply stick your fork in and start taking bites. If you’d prefer it to be mixed up, don’t fill the jar all the way and shake it up to mix the contents around. Of course, you can adjust the amount of each item based on your preferences.

This lunch is the perfect treat for me. Serve with some toast or almonds and bring an apple as desert and you’re set!

Do you ever prepare your lunch in a mason jar? What do you put in it?
