INGREDIENTS IN GLUTEN FREE ONION SOUP MIX
Dried Onion Flakes - This is our main ingredient - you can't make onion soup without onion. Dried onion flakes have a sweet onion flavor like onions that have been slow roasted.
Beef Bouillon Granules - This gives a substantial, hearty flavor. Always check your labels to be sure the bouillon is gluten free. Not all are.
Onion Powder - More onion is not a bad thing here. The onion powder will distribute into whatever you mix it with, while the flakes will stay in larger pieces.
Parsley Flakes - Dried parsley adds color and flavor to the mix.
Celery Seed - I love the flavor of celery seed in savory things like soups. It's a bright, herbal flavor.
Paprika - Paprika adds warmth and color to the mix.
Black Pepper - Gives the right amount of heat to our onion soup mix.
Cornstarch - Allows whatever you're cooking with this mix to thicken.
