Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. In a large roasting pan, toss leeks, onions, red onions, garlic, oil, salt, pepper, and thyme until well mixed. Place on middle rack and roast for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from onven and transfer to a large pot. Use 1/2 cu broth to scrape up any bits clinging to bottom of roasting pan. Add this and remaining broth to pot with onions.
  4. Simmer soup, partially covered, for 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet. Broil 1 minutes or until just barely toasted. Remove and flip slices over. Sprinkle 1 tbsp cheese on top of each slice and broil another 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from oven and keep in a cool, dry place until ready to serve.
  6. Serve hot, each bowl topped with 1 or 2 croûtes and a sprinkling of parsley.
