1/2 cup dry split peas
1/3 cup beef bouillon granules
1/4 cup pearl barley
1/2 cup dry lentils
1/4 cup dried onion flakes
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
1/2 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup uncooked alphabet pasta (or your choice)
In a 1 quart, layer the split peas, bouillon, barley, lentils, onion flakes, Italian seasoning, rice, and bay leaves. Wrap the pasta in plastic wrap, and place in the jar. Seal tightly.
Even though many of the ingredients did not have corresponding coupons, I was able to get everything I needed to make three jars for $7.85 thanks to Walmart’s low everyday prices. Expect to pay around $.79 per quart jar if you don’t have any on hand. Total cost per jar: $3.41! This makes a huge pot of soup that feeds my family of seven with leftovers to spare!
And did I mention how yummy it is???
You could make a nice gift basket by adding additional ingredients needed: 28-oz diced tomatoes, 6-oz tomato paste and maybe a package of dinner rolls and a soup ladle!
I’ve got two more In-A-Jar Recipes to share so stay tuned =)
