  • Summary

    Sauteing onion mellows the flavor without depleting its rich stores of quercetin, an antioxidant and potent anti-inflammatory. The little secret behind this soup's big, smoky flavor: just a touch of ham steak.

    Ingredients

    • 3 sprigs thyme, plus more, chopped, for garnish
    • 2 sprigs flat-leaf parsley, plus more, chopped, for garnish
    • 1 dried bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons safflower oil
    • 2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
