We’ve all been there: You want soup for lunch, but you’re not sure how to carry it without the risk of leakage. Enter these simple recipes, which layer quick-cooking ingredients and condiments like miso, harissa, and chipotle. Packing in a wide-mouthed heatproof container with airtight-fitting lid is your best bet. And since it doubles as a bowl, there’s one fewer thing to clean.

 

When you’re ready to eat, create the delicious broth: Fill the container almost to the top with water, seal, shake, remove the lid, and microwave for two minutes. Since hot water quick-cooks the ingredients, slice the vegetables extra thinly so they’ll be ready in a snap. Then season with salt, reseal, gently swirl, and enjoy.
