Making your own gluten-free onion soup mix is easy to do – and completely possible for even the novice cooks out there. When you make your own mix, you know it will be gluten-free and MSG-free too. I added the MSG part because did you know that the leading onion soup brand is NOT gluten-free AND contains MSG? What in the world was I feeding my family before my Celiac diagnosis!?!?
As many home cooks know, onion soup mix is a key ingredient in a plethora of recipes you’ll find online and in cookbooks. It flavors any dip or meat dish well and is a kitchen staple. I use it regularly to make a family favorite recipe, Cranberry-Orange Glazed Chicken.
If you’d like to make your own onion soup mix, I suggest you buy all the ingredients and make 6 or more bags for the year. This stuff keeps well in a sealed baggie. Then, when you need it, you don’t have to make it from scratch.
