LIPTON ONION SOUP MIX CLONE

We are approaching "party fixin's" season and many of us will be making dips and other recipes that require an envelope of onion soup mix. This recipe tastes JUST LIKE LIPTON ONION SOUP MIX (well, actually it tastes even better because it's such a full flavor).

It's made of pantry staples and it has no soy; it's gluten free; no MSG; you can use low sodium bullion and you can pronounce ALL of the ingredients (not to mention it is very budget friendly).

I am NEVER buying boxed
Lipton Onion Soup mix again!!

 
This clone recipe is GREAT for dips, pot roast, meat loaf, or anything you would normally use the onion soup mix for.
 
4 tablespoons DRY instant minced onion (toasted)
2 tablespoons LOW SODIUM beef bullion granules
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (not onion salt)
1/4 teaspoon DRY parsley flakes
1/8 teaspoon celery seed CRUSHED (important ingredient)
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
 
Equals a  single 1 1/4 oz.
envelope of soup mix.
 
NOTES: It is not necessary, but I toast the DRY instant minced onion in a hot DRY pan for a few minutes (watch it closely). When it turns golden, remove from the pan immediately or it will continue to get darker. Toast them until they are this color:
 
 
NOTES: Make sure you crush the celery seed (and don't leave it out). A mortar and pestle or spice grinder work well for this.
 
 
 
NOTES: If you use the GRANULAR TYPE beef bullion (and you are going to make a sour cream type dip) you'll have to mix everything together and let it sit in the fridge for 20 minutes or so........so the bullion granules can dissolve. After 20 minutes, just stir and the granules will disappear.
 
NOTES: This sounds like a LOT of onion, but it is just right!!

This looks great! I've always wanted to make homemade Lipton soup mix. I think I'll try this in a sour cream dip like you suggested!

I recently made a cooking and baking blog, too.

Hi Coleen

I just stumbled upon your blog today. Question: How do your readers print recipes off your blog, there's no printfriendly button on your blog.

To Jackie: by hand, bookmark, or copy and paste.
