If you use dry soup mix frequently, here’s a homemade version that’s sodium-free.
Dried Onion Soup Mix
3 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 teaspoon paprika
1/3 teaspoon turmeric (optional)
1 tablespoon sugar or heat-stable sugar substitute
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
¼ teaspoon ground pepper, or to taste
Shake ingredients together in a jar or plastic bag. Makes the equivalent of 1 (1.25-ounce) packet commercial dried onion soup. Use to boost flavor in stews, roasts and casseroles.
To make sour cream-onion dip, blend mix with 2 cups sour cream and chill thoroughly.
To use as soup, add 4 cups water, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
Yield: Serves 4.
