dried onion flakes
low-sodium beef bouillon granules
ground black pepper
I was saddened to learn that due to gluten allergies I could no longer enjoy my favorite California Dip, which everyone knows is just Lipton onion soup dip. There isn't another brand that comes close for superb onion dip. I'd rather pass than eat another. So I was skeptical, but decided to make this anyway, thinking it might be good enough. Well, it wasn't good enough. It was spot on, exactly the flavor of Lipton. Perfect as is, nothing to add or delete. I'm a very happy camper! I'm off to search for recipes that call for onion soup mix...
This is such an awesome recipe! I really love this and no preservatives and other junk like the packages! thank you for posting.
What could be more simple than this? I added this to a can of beer with some garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. I let a roast simmer until tender and sliced it thin for sandwiches. I skip the bullion due to DH's sodium restrictions and truly don't notice its absence. For dips I do add it and DH just has to be careful - this is good stuff! :) Great recipe to have on hand so I made up several little bags for my pantry.
Be sure to use low-sodium bouillon granules. If you cannot find them, make the mix without bouillon granules and substitute low-sodium beef broth for any liquid in the recipe you are using.
Excellent! Tastes just like Liptons Onion Soup Mix. I prepare individual packages of the mix by placing the mix in snack-sized ziploc baggies. And when a recipe calls for an envelope of onion soup I simply grab one of the zip loc bags. And by the way, I reuse the baggies. :)
Fantastical! I used to use the boxed stuff to make burgers and roasted potatoes and tons of other stuff, but it has barley in it! Thanks for a gluten, preservative, and artificial flavoring free alternative that tastes just as good and is WAY cheaper!!
This recipe and the onion soup mix recipe (also from this site) are great substitutions for the store bought pre-packaged high sodium ones. When possible, I will make my own seasoning mixes. I am always looking for reduced sodium recipes that also have flavor for my family.
This one makes me do the happy food dance!!
