Cabbage Patch Soup

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons bacon bits
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup sliced carrots
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 cup frozen green peas
3/4 cup sour cream

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté the bacon bits and onion in the oil for about 5 minutes, or until onion is tender. Stir in the flour to coat well, and then quickly pour in the chicken broth. Stir constantly for 3 minutes, or until somewhat thickened.

Next, add the cabbage, carrots, salt, ground black pepper and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in the peas and sour cream 1 minute before serving.  Allow to gently heat through.
