Please give me some ideas for soup that's built like French onion. Specifically, a brothy soup with some sustenance bits, a crunchy bready layer, and a broiled cheesy topping. I thought of minestrone, topped with garlic toast(?) and Parmesan but that's all I could come up with.
Any other ideas? I'm open to any meat or vegetarian options. Just no cream-based soups, please. I prefer a nice broth that gets thickened by toast/crackers.
