3 tablespoons unbleached flour
2 quarts vegetable broth

  5. Heat an oven to broil. Slice the baguette and tear the slices of cheese into pieces. Ladle the soup into an ovenproof bowl, top with two slices of bread and a layer of cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese melts. Transfer the hot soup to a plate and serve with an additional sprig of fresh thyme.
