Because it’s being stored you will need to source the dried onion flakes for this, not wet fresh onion

Hi Paulene, would this work for a chicken soup mix if I sub out the onion powder for chicken stock powder?

One comment you made was that 3tbls makes equivalent to a packet of soup mix. Is that a 40g packet?

A comment about making your own dried foods. I have looked on the packets in the supermarket, (such as taco mix) and more or less used the same ingredients. I don’t know whether French onion soup has actual onions in it but you can used dried fried shallots (tasty) or even bonito flakes.

This is awesome! I like making my own condensed soup and dried soup mix but I’m not clever enough to work out the ingredients myself. This one gets printed for me … now!

Since the packet mixes are not gluten free I’m loving this mix.

Had trouble finding Dried French Onion Soup Mix, and made this mix up. So thank you for this. Made it up this morning, minus the curry powder, and used it with Slow Cooked Sausages for this evenings meal. I was worried it might be a too spicy for me – but it was fine. My other-half and our sons loved it. Thank you for a mix that I know what’s in it – and no nasties.
