To make the soup:

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add broth, 6 cups water and soup mix and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until beans are tender, about 3 hours. Discard bay leaves and stir in salt and pepper.
