French onion soup

I don't like onions. I never have. My husband, however, loves them. French onion soup has always been one of his favorites so I set out to reinvent it Paleo.The things I do for the people I love! I even bought onion goggles. Onion goggles! No more tears. So, obviously while I was making this, I had to taste for salt and such. With my nose scrunched in stinky distaste, I tried it ... and lo and behold ... I loved it! Who knew? Me and onions have a new relationship now. I don't cry anymore (thanks to my kitchen fashion statement) and I give them an honest chance in lots of my recipes. This soup is truly wonderful all by itself or with a little cheese melted on top. Bon Appetit!


2 Tblsp Ghee

2 1/2 lbs White Onions, sliced

1 Tblsp Fresh Garlic, chopped

The Juice of One Fresh Lime

1/2 cup Dry Red Wine

2 cups Beef Stock, organic & free range

1/2 tsp Dried Thyme

One Bay Leaf

1 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Black Pepper 


Melt the ghee in a large sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add the onions and sprinkle with sea salt. Cook until onions have become deeply caramelized, stirring frequently ... as long as 1 1/2 hours depending on your heat intensity. Turn the heat up to medium and deglaze the pan with the red wine. Add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer for another 30 minutes or until it thickens.
