3 tablespoons olive oil
2 yellow onions, sliced
2 pounds carrots, thinly sliced
7 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt and pepper
16 crackers (optional)


Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the carrots, broth, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/3 teaspoon pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.

Divide the soup among individual bowls and serve with the crackers, if using.
