Homemade Onion Soup Mix
I really like the convenience of using pre-made spice packets in my recipes. The flavors are usually just what I need to make the recipe the way I want it. The problem is that some of them are too salty, and that can ruin a recipe. So now I make my own!
The commercial onion soup packets have a lot of sodium in them. Not everyone likes or can have that much salt. For those of you who are wanting a lower sodium content, you can make this dry onion soup recipe from scratch, with no salt, or low salt.
You might be surprised to learn that making homemade Onion Soup Mix is pretty easy because it contains spices you probably already have. I think the most exotic ingredient is ground celery seed, which you can buy in those small red capped containers at the supermarket. Also check the bulk section of stores that carry bulk spices.
This Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe makes the equivalent of 1 packet. You can multiply this recipe and store it in a mason style jar to keep it fresh.
Making homemade spice blends is one of my favorite ways of ensuring that I will always have something delicious to season a recipe with. Below I have linked to several of my favorites.
