Add in garlic, maple syrup or honey and salt. Sauté for another 10 minutes until onions start to caramelize. Add the arrowroot flour to the onions and stir well to coat. Add in water and tamari and let simmer for about 20 minutes to let flavours mesh.
To serve: Ladel out hot soup into serving dish. Sprinkle with croutons (about 1/4 cup). Cover with grated cheese (about 1/4 cup per serving). Place under broiler for 5 minutes or until golden. Serve. Bowls will be hot.
