Copycat French Onion Dip

One of my favorite snacks to have during a movie used to be Lipton’s French Onion Dip with potato chips. But now looking at the ingredients on the package, it’s not something I want to eat again! It has sugar, soy, gluten, MSG, need I say more?

In place of soy sauce, you can use coconut aminos. Many different brands of coconut aminos taste differently. Trader Joe’s brand is by far the cheapest and still tastes good. However, the New Primal brand has my favorite taste and comes out the most similar to the Lipton mix. It’s more savory compared to the sweeter Trader Joe’s version.

The optional salt and extra coconut aminos will largely depend on which brand of coconut aminos you choose, so play around with it and see what you like.
