- Onion powder or chopped onions
Combine three parts salt and one part onion powder.
For 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp): Use 3 Tbsp salt + 1 Tbsp onion powder.
To make one cup: Use 3/4 cup salt + 1/4 cup onion powder.
Store in an air-tight container. This onion salt doesn’t contain an anti-caking agent, so if you’ve been storing it awhile, you may need to break up a few clumps, before you use it.
To make onion salt from chopped onion (also known as dried onions or onion flakes), simply grind the chopped onions in a spice grinder, a food processor or with a mortar and pestle, to create the onion powder you need for this recipe.
Onion Salt Substitutes:
- An equal amount of garlic powder
- Replace One Tablespoon of onion powder with 1/4 cup grated (or finely minced) onion + 3/4 teaspoon salt. This will add bulk and moisture to your recipe, so it’s not suitable for every dish
