Onion powder

What is onion powder? About the ingredient onion powder. Including 363 recipes with onion powder, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Onion powder is a spice which is made from dried onions. The spice retains some of the pungency and flavor of fresh onions.

Some cooks like to use onion powder because it is easier to handle than fresh onions, requiring no chopping or special treatment, and a number of recipes call for it.

Most markets carry onion powder, typically with the other dried spices, and depending on where you live, you may be able to find several varieties of onion powder to choose from.

In cooking, a single teaspoon of onion powder can replace an entire medium-sized onion, although cooks will experience some loss of flavor.
