I’ve always had a thing for French onion soup. I even occasionally choose it over broccoli and cheese at Panera . . . I know, major. So I decided to make my own . . . and make it (sort of) paleo. And it’s in the crock pot . . .
4 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons almond meal
8 ounces of beer
64 ounces of low-sodium beef stock
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
gruyere cheese, sliced
once your onions are sliced mix them with the garlic and brown sugar and cook for 1 hour on high – go in and mix it occasionally to be sure the carmelization is happening.
Then add the almond meal – mix – and wait a few minutes – like do 50 squats.
Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for 8 hours.
Once you’re ready to eat, put it in a baking dish and cover in cheese slices. Then boil it for 2-3 minutes – until that cheese is gooey and a little brown on top. Yup that cheese isn’t paleo . . . don’t. cuuur.
Yum! It was sooooooo delish!
