    French Onion

    I made your French onion soup mix today, and enjoyed it. We had a big snowstorm in the northeast yesterday, and was looking for something soothing today, after shoveling out. The French Onion hit the spot.

    Fabulous French Onion Soup

    Posted by Linda L on Jan 3rd 2023

    Hello there, I just want to let you know that your French Onion Soup is the BEST. However, when I made the soup I thought I was to add Apple Cider VINEGAR...and it was fantastic. I then gave a lot of them away for Christmas and found out that I was supposed to add Apple Cider/Juice instead of the vinegar. So I tried it with Apple Cider and guess what??? It was not as tasty for me without the apple cider vinegar so I added VINEGAR to it to give it more zing. Maybe you will add this as an option?! It is a fabulous product. Thank you

    Wanted to share my experience with your Chicago Bistro French Onion soup mix:

    Posted by BFL on Dec 20th 2022

    I used the recipe but in following my plant based eating...... I substituted 3 tbsp butter with 3 tbsp olive oil, I have a love affair with red onions and used the suggested amount, Substituted the 6 cups of beef broth with vegetable broth, low sodium, and did used the sugar for caramelization. Outstanding flavor, my kitchen smells incredible and everyone I shared it with....raved. Will definately be buying more types.
