Paleo french onion soup

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!
