This is a fun little recipe that I have yet to try but I think it would really come in handy for those recipes that call for onion soup mix. I posted a similar recipe earlier this year but it calls for onion bouillon which I’ve never noticed at my grocery store, so this one has more common ingredients. If you’re curious about the ingredients in Lipton onion soup mix, take a look. It also has 27% of the your daily sodium requirements.
“Dehydrated Onions, Salt, Corn Starch, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Colour, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Corn Syrup Solids, Disodium Guanylate, Disodium Inosinate, Sulphites. May contain milk, soy, sulphites, wheat.”
Unfortunately the beef bouillon isn’t any better so I did a search for organic beef bouillon instead and found this product from GoBIO. These beef bouillon cubes are made with real organic beef and are gluten free.
Ingredients: Sea Salt, Corn Starch*, Non-Hydrogenated Palm Oil*, Yeast Extract, Glucose Syrup*, Beef Fat*, Dehydrated Beef Powder*, Tomatoes*, Roasted Onions*, Lovage* , Garlic*, Pepper*, Rosemary*, Thyme*. *certified organic
I had no idea what Lovage was so I googled it and apparently it’s a plant that has a similar flavour as celery.
Homemade Onion Soup Mix
8 teaspoons instant minced onion (I believe this is the same as onion flakes?)
1 teaspoon onion powder
4 teaspoons beef bouillon (like OXO powder)
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
Mix together and use in recipes just as you would the store bought kind!
