Pantry Staples: Low Sodium Dry Onion Soup Mix

This dry mix is equivalent to a commercial envelope of dry onion soup mix that makes 4 cups of soup, and it’s also low sodium, something that you won’t find in the stores! It’s handy to have in your pantry, no expensive last minute runs to the store.

Low Sodium Dry Onion Soup Mix

  • 3 Tbsp diced dried onion
  • 4 tsp low sodium bouillon (beef or vegetable)
  • 1 tsp onion powder (not onion salt)
  • 1⁄4 tsp celery seed
  • 1⁄4 tsp ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together and store in a small mason jar (4-ounce works well).

Add to rice and other starch dishes to give flavor without added MSG or heavy sodium.

Depending on your taste for salt, you may want to add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt to the mix. We used no sodium added broth powder.

You can make it vegan by using a vegan-friendly vegetable bouillon powder.
