Once you have this around for a while you’ll wonder what you did without it. This onion soup mix is great to use for a quick cup-of-soup, for dips, a rub for meats, or a base for sauces, soups, stews, and gravies. Stored in an airtight jar, it will last for at least a month.
Below you will find a recipe for the onion soup mix as well as some suggested ways to put it to good use.
What you’ll need:
4 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon thyme
Pinch of black pepper
½ cup dehydrated onion flakes
What you’ll do:
Mix together and store in an airtight container for up to a month.
Add by the teaspoon to a cup of sour cream until you reach your desired strength. Let sit for 10 minutes in the refrigerator to let the onions soften.
Use as a rub to flavour beef. Adding a bit of cornstarch will aid in browning.
FOR CUP OF SOUP:
Add a teaspoon or more to a cup of hot water and stir. For better colour and richer flavour, add a pinch of instant coffee – yup, I said coffee. You’ll be surprised. If you are avoiding caffeine, add a pinch of gluten free bouillon powder.
Add 1 Tablespoon to ¼ cup ketchup, 2 Tablespoons water, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Mix together and brush onto chicken. Bake in 350 degree oven until done.
Add some to the hamburger before forming into patties. Thanks to Rural Route Lupiac who posted this awesome idea in the comments below!
