Who doesn’t love Lipton Onion Soup Mix? Especially, during the holidays. It’s in every bowl of gravy, casserole, and the best dish of all – classic french onion dip. That stuff is like crack.

It’s perfect for adding flavor to veggie burgers, roasted red potatoes, and making that coveted onion dip that everyone loves. This is not just one more copycat recipe – it’s better! Don’t let your pantry be caught without it. Ready? Let’s make it!
Ingredients For Copycat Lipton Onion Soup Mix
Most Lipton onion soup mix recipes are not vegan because they use beef bouillon. But, not this one. All you have to do is whip up a batch of my Vegetable Bouillon Powder and you’re good to go. And, don’t leave it out. It’s the most important element of this recipe.
And, don’t sub the vegetable bouillon with a store-bought brand. They usually contain oil, fillers, and are high in sodium. Once you have the bouillon made you only need a few more ingredients. Here’s what you need.
- Dried Onion Flakes
- Vegetable Bouillon Powder
- Onion Powder & Garlic Powder
- Dried Parsely
- Paprika (I like using smoked paprika because it adds another layer of flavor)
- Celery Seed
- Black Pepper
Salt is optional because it’s already in the vegetable bouillon. So, I would make the dry onion soup mix and then season with salt as needed.
