Can this be done? Is one equivalent to the other?

Onion soup mix has a lot of other spices and flavors.

yes, it's not the same, but it definitely is a good substitute. I never use onion soup mix, or any other mix.

Yes, but add some salt as well. Also, you can use sauteed onions and they will give you a better flavor than the soup mix most times.

Seraph has a recipe for onion soup mix on her blog:

Homemade Onion Soup Mix
2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder (make your own by whizzing up dried onion flakes in the food processor or coffee grinder)
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt (you want celery salt that is mostly salt with just a bit of celery seed- not pure celery seed ground up, or your soup mix will be bitter and not have enough saltiness to it)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sucanat or sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

1. Mix it all up. Shake it very well, because the heavy spices will settle to the bottom.

That's it!
4 tablespoons of this onion soup mix equals 1 packet of onion soup mix.
I found it needed a bit more salt, but I tend to like things salty, so start off with this amount and then adjust to taste.

The majority is onion flakes/powder, so it should substitute pretty well, though not perfectly. You can add a drop of parsley, salt & pepper, and sugar for a more authentic taste.
