- 1 medium onion, cut into 8 wedges
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt or 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt

- Simmer, covered, 5 minutes (or until vegetables are tender).
- Stir in thyme.

Really hearty and tasty soup :) I added a few garlic cloves and some beef stock in addition to the vegetable stock because I had WAY more vegetables than called for - and beef stock was in my fridge. Served it with some cornbread to complete the meal.
