Looking for a gluten free onion soup mix recipe? To my surprise all our gluten eating guests loved it! Several guests asked me what ingredients were in my dip. Since we are not big on sodium, I left out about 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons of the mix, though you may wish to use the entire recipe. Enjoy this gluten free onion soup mix recipe for dips or soup. We sure did!
In 2011, when I first created this recipe, the ingredients that I found online for Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix were: onions (deyhydrated), salt, cornstarch, onion powder, sugar, corn syrup, hydrolyzed soy protein, caramel color, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, monosodium glutamate [MSG], yeast extract, natural flavors, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate. However, most recipes online call for beef bouillon cubes, so I took a stab at it.
UPDATE see my notes in [brackets]: In 2015, their recipe changed. The ingredients I recently found on Walmart’s website are: Dehydrated Onions, Salt, Corn Flour, Hydrolyzed Soy And Wheat Protein, Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Caramel Color, Maltodextrin [may contain gluten depending upon the source; however, it is highly processed, the gluten is processed out], Natural And Artificial Flavors, Monosodium Glutamate [MSG], Disodium Phosphate, Arabic Gum, Disodium Inosinate And Disodium Guanylate.
If using this gluten free instant onion soup mix for soup, you may wish to add additional potato starch mixed with water, adding a bit at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
