Make your own… Homemade Onion Soup Mix
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!
The Recipe: Gluten Free Dairy Free Homemade Onion Soup Mix
- 8 teaspoons dried onion flakes
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- Blend everything together well. Use as needed for your recipe.
- Note: This blend does not contain salt (unlike the pre-made packets. Hoo-boy! Are they salty!), so be sure to taste your dish and season as needed.

We LOVED this! Thanks for posting it.
So glad to hear it! Thanks! 🙂
Yeah! GF and no soy products make this a good choice for me.
I hope you like it! 🙂
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. 🙂
Thank you so much! GF, soy free, salt free, boullion free, it’s everything we needed. Love your site!
So glad you like it! Let me know if there is something you have been missing, but can’t find a recipe for. I might have it, but just haven’t posted it yet… 🙂
Thanks so much for a soy free, gluten free, dairy free solution. Can’t wait to try it!
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
How much do you use if it says for one packet worth?
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. 🙂
Thanks in advance looking forward to using it.
I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by!
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!
