Make your own soup mix

I have to admit, onion soup mix is ​​a staple item in our pantry. Up until now, I have always bought the little packets from the store. But now I have a perfect recipe to replace the store bought stuff!

Making your own means you know what’s going into the soup mix. I did purchase beef bouillon granules and after reading all the ingredients on several different brands of bouillon, I picked out one that works for me.

The bullion or broth base I used was from Orrington Farms and is pretty readily available in most grocery stores. I like this brand because it is gluten free and minimal on the additives. They also have a low sodium variety you can choose.

You can use any brand you’d like, but do get a powdered or granular broth, not cubes or a paste.

We like to use this onion soup mix for making sour cream dip. It’s so easy, and talk about flavor! It’s perfect for any chip, veggie or cracker.

This recipe makes a large batch so you can easily store in your pantry and have it ready for whenever you need it. One packet of store bought soup mix is ​​equal to ¼ cup of this homemade soup mix.

This is called a soup mix, but it’s also a spice mix! It can be added to so many different recipes to give a punch of flavor!
