Clean eating onion soup mix is so easy to make and so versatile, I am in love with it.
Eating clean has not really been a struggle for me. Big and I have always eaten meals that don’t use a lot of pre-packaged and prepared foods. I love getting in the kitchen and cooking and creating homemade mixes is so fun. This onion soup mix is a new favorite. I think it may actually be better than my Cajun spice mix.
I grew up, as many of us did, with a box of Lipton Onion Soup in the pantry. There were so many great uses for it and my Mom considered it her secret ingredient. For many years, I felt the same way. I had a box in my pantry and grabbed it when I was making meatloaf, dip and soup.
Now that I am reading labels more and paying more attention to what goes in my families bellies, I realize that many of the convenience/packaged foods have things in them that I don’t want in my family.
I found this recipe at in a great cookbook on Amazon, (where I am an affiliate) titled, 100 Days of Real Food. This book has helped Big and I along our clean eating/real food path. I tweeked the recipe a little to make it something that my family would like.

I like to store my soup mix in Kerr canning jars. I like using glass in my pantry (no chemicals) and I enjoy being able to see what I have stored in my pantry.
I have used the clean eating onion soup mix in many recipes. I think my favorite way to use is is while making a dip. It is so easy.
Use Clean Eating Onion Soup Mix to make dip
- 1 16 ounce container of sour cream (we use organic, whole milk sour cream)
- 1 recipe of clean eating onion soup mix
- Mix together (I use a Duralex glass bowl), let stand about 15 minutes for the onions to soften.
