This French Onion Soup (AIP/Paleo) is full of rich, beautiful, authentic flavors! Serve with optional crostini on top – or bread and cheese for non-Paleo peeps.Jump to Recipe
From the age of nine, I’ve been inexplicably drawn to all things French. And why? Je ne sais pas. 🤷🏼♀️ I love the food, the language and the culture. I started being interested in French cooking in high school when I was learning the language.
This recipe is patterned after one I loved from one of my French cookbooks. Of course, I had to make a few adjustments to make it friendly with my current diet, but I made it as authentic as possible!
Now, any soup is only as good as the base broth. I’ve linked to my recipe for Roasted Beef Bone Broth, because – et je vous promets – you will want the good stuff. Otherwise, you will just have onions in broth. Mais non!
I feel I must include a caveat whenever I post a recipe that involves alcohol. First and foremost, if you have someone in your house with an alcohol addiction, or you find that you are super sensitive to alcohol, just leave it out! Please be thoughtful to yourself and others as you cook.
“But,” you say, “alcohol is not allowed on the autoimmune protocol!” Correct. However, you can use a gluten-free alcohol in cooking so long as it is cooked off. For further information, please check out this article by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (aka The Paleo Mom) on the subject.
It is my hope that you will find this soup warming, nourishing, delicious and healing. Happy cooking, everyone!
