HOMEMADE DRY ONION SOUP MIX
This is a deliciously easy Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix recipe. Control the sodium, MSG and gluten that goes into your diet with this do-it-yourself recipe! I’ve had lots of successes with my other homemade seasonings: RANCH SEASONING MIX and TACO SEASONING MIX
IS ONION SOUP MIX GLUTEN FREE?
One of the questions I get most often is how someone can tailor a recipe to fit their dietary needs. And I’m not gonna lie y’all, I really don’t like to go there. There are just too many factors in health-specific diets that there is no possible way I can be an expert in them all, and let’s be real, I’m just a cook – not a doctor or a certified nutritionist. Many store-bought onion soup mixes are not gluten free. But this recipe is!
HOMEMADE, DELICIOUS AND TESTED!
So I set out to find a recipe that tastes like the packet kind (maybe even better!) but where I could control the sodium. And for that, I had to find sodium-free beef bouillion cubes or granules. I easily found it at Walmart. I was kind of surprised. I thought it would be a bigger chore than it was and I was prepared to order it from Amazon so I could test this recipe. So I whipped this up and then tested it in a couple of recipes. And I gotta say, not only did it taste amazing, it worked seamlessly and I couldn’t even tell the difference between the two. It might’ve actually been a tad bit better. 🙂
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
dried onion flakes
sodium-free beef bouillon granules
ground black pepper
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE DRY ONION SOUP MIX:
Measure all of the ingredients into a bowl or a lidded container.

You could certainly make extra and pop it into an old container to use for later!
