    I've made this soup at least a dozen times. I use vegetable broth and smoked Gouda. It's turned out awesome every time. I specifically like this recipe as it's closest to French onion soup I used to eat while living in Europe. It's a family favorite and I've made it for numerous friends. Everyone loves it!

    This was great. It's not easy to find a good vegetarian French onion soup recipe but this was perfect; even my husband, who hates onions, had a second bowl. I used vegetable broth rather than plain water (and had to use about two additional cups) and I used Gruyere cheese which gave it a nice tang.

    Thank you! I haven't had French Onion Soup since I went veg in '89, and I've missed it. I finally got me some oven safe bowls and went looking for a recipe, and yours hit the spot. The gouda was a nice innovative touch. We loved it.
