Make your own… Homemade Onion Soup Mix

by angelaskitchen on April 13, 2011

Onion Soup Mix packets.  Perfect for dips, foil camp meals, slow cooker roasts, or where ever you need it.  We all know no one actually makes soup with it, right?  There are a few gluten free brands of Onion Soup Mix out there, but most of them have ingredients that I am not too excited about feeding my family.  Other do-it-yourself recipes I have seen usually have bullion which again, may have gluten or undesirable ingredients.  So, what to do if you would like a little oniony goodness (and want to save a little cash to boot)?  Make it yourself, baby!

So excited to find this recipe. I’ve just started going Gluten free and was assuming I would have to find a mix recipe and leave out any gluten containing ingredients…then I stumbled on this one. You can be sure I’m going to take a good look at your other GF recipes!

I am so glad you are here! Let me know if you have any questions on ingredients or recipes. 🙂

How much do you use if it says for one packet worth?


angelaskitchen November 8, 2012 at 7:58 am

The entire amount as written equals one of the onion soup packets you buy in the store. So, simply use as directed in your recipe. If a meatloaf or slow cooker chicken dish calls for one packet, just use all the above in the recipe. Be sure to season your dish with salt, though, as this does not contain the crazy amount of salt the packets contain. Try tossing on oven wedges with olive oil and salt before roasting or in a beef and sweet potato foil packet over the campfire. Yum! Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. 🙂

Great recipe! Thanks so much! I actually forgot to add the parsley, added 1/2 tsp. of powdered GF bouillon and used it to make dirty rice. Absolutely delicious!!

Awesome idea, Karla! I am going to need to make some dirty rice this weekend, now. Yum!
