I have several very yummy recipes that I’ve really wanted to convert to real food recipes. But one problem that I encountered was that some of my favorites contain onion soup mix. I was surprised at just how many casseroles call for it! So I picked up a package of onion soup mix when I was at the store and read the ingredients…..Yikes! I just couldn’t buy the soup mix with all of those toxic additives! Sugar, caramel coloring, MSG, corn syrup, and more.
Living more simply means getting rid of a lot of the junk that’s just not necessary in the food that I eat. While it may be more convenient, it isn’t the best for my body.
So I played around to create a suitable recipe that I could substitute and here it is. It doesn’t taste exactly like the envelopes that you get at the store, but it was very tasty. Hope you enjoy it too!
You could use some onion soup mix to make french onion chip dip. It’s also perfect for soups and stews. This stores well for up to a year. I like to store it in mason jars like this. If you use this mix a lot, make a double batch!
