*If possible, use a product with reduced salt (you can find some with 25% less salt). The onion soup mix adds flavour and simplifies the task. The pouch contains more salt than spices, but since its contents is divided into many portions, the amount of salt per portion is quite acceptable. Or there are two other options: Option 1: Make your own homemade mixture with spices, dehydrated onion flakes, beef broth powder, onion powder and garlic powder. Option 2: You can simply use only a small amount of the onion soup mix.
