Don't have a sachet of onion soup mix handy? Mix onion flakes, beef stock powder, onion powder, celery seed, pepper, paprika and parsley then problem solved.
Mix with a bottle of sour cream and you have a mean dip.
Massell beef style stock + firm silken tofu, whizzed = vegan dip. - 17 Feb 2014
I was saddened to learn that due to gluten allergies I could no longer enjoy my favorite California Dip, which everyone knows is just Lipton onion soup dip. There isn't another brand that comes close for superb onion dip. I'd rather pass than eat another. So I was skeptical, but decided to make this anyway, thinking it might be good enough. Well, it wasn't good enough. It was spot on, exactly the flavor of Lipton. Perfect as is, nothing to add or delete. I'm a very happy camper! I'm off to search for recipes that call for onion soup mix... - 03 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What could be more simple than this? I added this to a can of beer with some garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. I let a roast simmer until tender and sliced it thin for sandwiches. I skip the bullion due to DH's sodium restrictions and truly don't notice its absence. For dips I do add it and DH just has to be careful - this is good stuff! Great recipe to have on hand so I made up several little bags for my pantry. - 22 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
