French Onion Soup as a dry mix is such a tasty addition to casseroles, potatoes and dips etc. But sadly the store-bought variety have gluten in them, sometimes milk, soy and lots of additives and preservatives and as such, it has been off the menu for us for quite some time. So I have been experimenting and have come up with a great substitute.
You can use it in exactly the same way as you’d use a packet of the dry soup mix. About 30g is the equivalent of 1 packet.
- 4 heaped tbsp Onion flakes
- 1 heaped tbsp Garlic flakes
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1 tsp black peppercorns
- 1 heaped tbsp beef style stock powder (I use Massel as it is vegan too)
- 3/4 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp dried paprika
Mix all ingredients together and mill until peppercorns are fine.
You could use ground pepper if you don’t have access to a machine that mills, then just blitz all together in a food processor/blender etc.
Store in an airtight container and this will last many months (if you don’t use it first!)
