Way cheaper to make it yourself than buy the packets. This recipe makes the equivalent of one packet of soup mix. If you're adding this to a liquid, the bouillon cubes don't need crushed.

This also works with the organic Better than Bouillion base. Just use a teaspoon or so of the bouillion base in place of the cubes. If you're vegan, use the vegetable base in it's place. You won't be able to tell the difference. You won't go back to buying packaged onion mix again. NOTE: And if you are MSG sensitive, there is NO MSG in the Better than Bouillion bases. Read More

This is great, maybe. It does not state instructions on here so I do not know how much to add to equal one package, or anything. Do not want to have to eyeball this or keep tasting to find out. Read More

I would rate this recipe a 10 if I could. This tastes like the envelope of dry onion soup mix only better. It has a really good flavor that isn't so over powering as the pre-package ones. This recipe only takes minutes to put together because I had ALL the ingredients on hand and for a fraction of the price. I used 4 tsp. of powdered beef bouillion. I omitted the salt due to the sodium content in the beef bouillon. In our house, if you want salt, add it at the table. I will never buy the envelopes again. Read More

Good. Didn't have bouillon cubes but used 1 tsp. of beef base instead. Was adding to liquid so it didn't matter. Will definitely make again. Read More

In the description it states that it makes the equivalent of one packet of soup mix. The instructions state to simply mix it together. Read More

Amazing! I'd never even thought of making my own. This is genious! and I can adjust for family tastes - a bit of garlic... it saves and is so much better without the MSG etc. My hat is off to you mamakittyto3:) Read More

Excellent! I use powdered beef bouillon, and at least triple the recipe so I have some on hand for a soup base. No MSG, or other unpronouncable items! Read More

Works great! I made this in bulk for about 100 servings and have it stored in a 1/2 gallon airtight tupperware. I hate paying the store to mix things I can mix myself!! Read More

I didn't actually make soup with this but I used this in a recipe that called for onion soup mix. It tasted so much better than the artificial soup mix. I also used some to make chip dip which turned out great too. I bought organic MSG-free bullion from whole foods. Read More
