  1. In a heavy bottomed pot with a tight fitting lid, heat the olive oil over a medium high flame. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Sprinkle with a little sea salt, stir, then cover. Lower the heat to medium and let the veggies sweat for 30 minutes. Stir them occasionally to make sure they aren''t sticking. They must not burn.
  2. Remove the bay leaf. Add just enough water to cover the vegetables. Puree, then heat through. Add a little more water if you like a thinner soup. Serve with a generous grating of Parmesan cheese.
