Gladys Said:substitute for onion powder?
We Answered:Onion Salt, if you back off on the regular salt
If you have fresh onion, try grating it on the large holes of a grater. Use about 3x of fresh what is called for dry. (if your recipe calls for 1 tsp. onion powder, add 3 tsp. fresh grated onion and juice.)
Brian Said:What is dehydrated onion?? Is it the same thing as onion powder in terms of a cooking ingredient?
We Answered:Dehydrated onion is meant to substitute for diced fresh onion. Yes, you can usually find this in large grocery stores. It is the same thing that comes in onion soup packets (along with broth).
But I wouldn't bother using dehydrated onion. I would just use fresh, browned first.
George Said:I need some onion powder, but I don't have any. Is there anything that can take the place of it in a recipe?
We Answered:use finely minced onion or grind the onion in the food processor and use the juice. About a teaspoon of either will be good.
Eileen Said:using onion powder besides fresh onions?
We Answered:1 small onion = 1/3 cup = 1 teaspoon onion powder = 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
I do this often myself, and it seems to work fine. :)
Fernando Said:Can i replace onion salt with onion powder and salt?
We Answered:I would not add extra salt if salt is already in the ingredient list. You don't want the recipe to become too salty. Don't see why you can't just add 1/4 tsp. of onion powder. Just make sure that the powder isn't old - the flavor can turn if you've had it too long.
