Paleo French Onion Soup

You really love someone when you make them French Onion soup. Slicing a bunch of onions can really bring a big man... or in my case a tough girl... to tears. Anyway, the hubbs requested this and it turned out pretty good!

1 T olive oil
4 onions, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T arrowroot starch
1/4 water
2 shredded carrots
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups beef stock
pepper to taste
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp sage

In a crockpot (if your insert is removable for frying) or in a large skillet, sauté the onions, garlic, and oil until onions get soft. Sprinkle the starch and stir for about 1 minute. Add water to deglaze the pan (this is really good if you use a gluten free beer or wine instead). Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, then put the pot back into the crockpot and cook on low for a couple of hours until you are ready to eat.
