LIPTON ONION SOUP MIX CLONE - How many times have you set out to put your favorite ingredients into the crockpot, only to realize you do not have Lipton Onion Soup Mix?

Well, this clone recipe is coming to the rescue. It tastes just like boxed Liptons Onion Soup mix (I think it is MUCH better because it has such a FULL flavor). It is quick to make out of pantry staples; it has no soy; it's gluten free; no MSG; you can use low sodium bullion if you want; you can pronounce ALL of the ingredients, and 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 so they are this color:

NOTES: Make sure you crush the celery seed (and don't leave it out). A mortar and pestle 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 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!!
