Onion Soup Mix Recipe – make your own soup mix at home with just a few simple ingredients. You can control the sodium and chemicals and use it in all the ways you would use the store bought mix.
I love making homemade mixes at home, so you can control the ingredients. Store bought is easy and a great shortcut, and there will never be any judgement from me on using it. But sometimes you want to know exactly what you are eating or cut out a certain ingredient.
This onion soup mix is a copycat recipe of the classic Lipton Onion Soup Mix. When I was growing up, we always had a box in the pantry, and used it in so many different recipes.
The soup mix you buy in the store most likely contains MSG. A lot of people like to avoid that and there are a fair number of people who are allergic to it. So making your own seasoning mixes at home are so easy and great to do. This Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix is another great one if you really want to know what is in your food.
One of the other things you can control is the sodium when you make your own mixes. Store bought mixes are notoriously high in sodium. Most of it comes from the beef bullion in the recipe, but you can find low sodium beef bullion to use and it cuts down on it drastically!
