Back when the McDougall forums were still on VegSource Jan Tz posted a few recipes using Lipton's Recipe Secrets, the fat-free version, and every ingredient was within McDougall's guidelines so a few other recipes appeared with it.
I don't remember for sure right now, but it *may* have also been on one of the versions of the Approved Foods lists, too. I don't see it listed in any category of the list now, though. I think Mary McDougall may have said on a video to mix it with her homemade tofu-based mayo or sour cream.
I just looked at them on-line:http://www.makinglifebetter.com/brands/ ... pesecrets/
and none are labeled as fat-free, and every one has either some oil or chicken fat added, so I guess they're no longer safe for use on the program.
I have a recipe I found on-line ages ago that shows how you can make your own McD-safe version, and you can always use no-salt type of the bouillon powder:

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
7 ounces vegetarian beef-style bouillon granules
1/4 cup instant unsweetened tea powder -- adds color and tang without more salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups dry minced onion
1/4 cup onion powder

Combine in order listed, mix very well but do not use blender. Keep the mixture in an airtight container such as a zippered plastic baggie with the air pressed out. Makes 2 cups (equivalent of 8 envelopes). 1/4 cup mix equals 1 envelope commercial soup mix.
TO USE: Soup-1/4 cup mix to 4 cups boiling water. Stir well until powder is dissolved. Onion dip- 4-5 tablespoon to 1 pint of sour cream or plain yogurt.
Variations These ingredients are optional but tasty: 1-2 tablespoons dried mushroom powder or 1/4 cup chopped dried mushrooms Vegetable: Use vegetable bouillon

NOTES : I wonder how much money Lipton's has made since they introduced this 50 years ago? Yours costs less than 1/3 of the brandname mix. This also makes a great rub, and of course that traditional California onion dip.
