Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large soup pot. Add the onions and saute for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 15 to 20 minutes until caramelized. Add the broth, water, thyme, soy sauce, bay leaves and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaves.
