Onion Soup Mix (DIY)

Have you passed up a recipe because you didn’t have dry onion soup mix? It is one of those items that you don’t think to buy unless you are preplanning a meal. But you can make it from items that are usually in your pantry and spice rack. Making your own dry mixes will help use up spices that linger on the spice rack. I keep dehydrated onions all the time. You can buy them at the discount stores for a $1 a container. You can find them in the spice isle. It takes 3 ounces of dried onions so look on the container for the weight. Beef granulated bullion is another item that is a pantry must. I use it often in other recipe to enhance the flavor. The rest of the ingredients in this soup mix is in your spice rack. The powdered sugar is to keep the onion powder from clumping up when stored. Also there is some sweetness when onions are caramelized.

You can make this your own with the spices. This is a basic recipe and you can decrease or increase to your own tastes. I added additional parsley and celery flakes to mine. I dehydrate celery leaves to make celery flakes.

Making it yourself saves money and you know what has gone in it. This is a good recipe to keep in your recipe box. You won’t find many cookbooks that will have it and who wants to search for it every time you need it on the internet. I keep all my recipes I like to use on a 4 inch by 6 inch index cards in a file box..

      I think there is low sodium bullion in beef flavor in the cubes. Those can always be ground up with the sugar. You are always welcome to stop in.

  2. I haven’t made any onion soup mix before, but I like your recipe best from what I can see. I like the idea of a little sugar, but no additional salt other than the celery salt.

      There is many options using herbs when you make it yourself. I didn’t bother to crush or grind my celery leaves because I usually like seeing the herbs in what I cook. It is a handy recipe to keep. Thanks for taking time to tell me what you thought of it.
