In a large heavy pan, cook ground beef and chopped onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender; drain off any fat. Add the water, peeled and cubed potatoes, chopped tomatoes, shredded cabbage, chopped carrots, chopped celery, wild rice, dried thyme, bay leaf, pepper, and sea salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Discard bay leaf. Sprinkle each serving with 1/2 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese. You can omit the cheese if you'd like or add a different cheese or any other topping you desire.
