Due to my dietary restrictions {read about them here}, I have had to replace many kitchen staples with homemade versions. After I got over the initial annoyance of cooking mostly from scratch, I have found that homemade is so much tastier than store-bought (surprise, surprise) and it always feels good to know exactly what is in my food.

Dry Onion Soup Mix Substitute

Dry onion soup mix is one staple that I missed when I first started my diet.  I mean, really, who doesn’t crave onion dip with Ruffles every once in a while?!  Plus, in a pinch, it saves so much time to throw dry onion soup mix into the pot for seasoning instead of measuring out a bunch of different spices (and we all know how much I love to save time).  Eventually, I realized that I needed to find a replacement, so I experimented with several recipes online and found a couple that I liked.  In fact, there are two winners that I use regularly, but for different purposes.

Today’s recipe does not make the best onion dip (nor would I use it for actual onion soup), but it is a great substitute in recipes that call for dry onion soup mix as a seasoning rather than the “main event”.  Around here, this blend is perfect for my favorite meatball recipe; in fact, I actually call this my “meatball spice mix” rather than dry onion soup mix.  I double this recipe and keep a stash of the mix in a Fido jar, all ready to go! {My handy-dandy recipe plug-in will multiply the recipe for you…just increase the servings below}

  1. I made this last week. I will never buy it again! I strive to eat a gluten-free diet. Store bought varieties all have wheat in them! Thanks for sharing this. I have used it in 2 recipes now, yummy!
