Cooking Time40 min


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 pound russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 1/2 pound cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cups canned vegetable broth
  • 6 French bread slices (1-inch-thick)
  • 12 ounces Gouda cheese, wax removed, cheese sliced


  1. Melt butter in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Add potatoes, cauliflower, carrots and onion; saute until onion is golden brown, about 7 minutes.
  3. Add 4 cups broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until vegetables are tender, adding more broth if soup is too thick, about 30 minutes.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Preheat broiler. Transfer soup to large broiler-proof bowl or individual broiler-proof soup bowls. Arrange bread slices atop soup. Place cheese over bread, covering completely.
  6. Broil 6 inches from heat source until cheese melts and is golden, watching closely to avoid burning, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
