Substitute for Chopped Fresh Onion
Keep instant minced onions on hand for those times when you don't have a fresh onion on hand, or are only in need of a small amount of chopped onion. Substitute 1 Tbsp. instant minced onion for each 1/4 cup of chopped fresh onion. For best results, rehydrate the dried onions in a small amount of water before using.
