Lipton Onion Soup is used in many recipes. Dips, enhanced soups, stews and meat marinades benefit from the added zest of the ingredients found in these dry soup packages bring to them. If you prefer to enjoy the soup as it is was originally designed to be used, it is best to follow Lipton's simple recipe for making the soup. This recipe, which is found on the box, is intended to be the basic formula for making a pot of warm onion soup.
Pour four cups of water into the pot. Set the pot onto a burner on the stove.
Turn the heat up on the stove. Mix in the packaged ingredients. Stir well to mix in the dry packaged ingredients as the water heats up. Bring the water and the ingredients to a boil.
Reduce the heat and let the soup simmer just below boiling for 10 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and serve hot.
