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

I have made many recipes from this site and have been generally very pleased, but find myself not rating the recipe, for one reason or another. However, I found myself compelled to rate this one! I made no changes other than to add some smoked sausage links. My husband and I were amazed at how wonderful this was!!! And, in the middle of August in California. You'd expect this to be a winter soup, but it was wonderful at lunch time, (along with a smoked sausage sandwich). I made enough to freeze but did not add the peas or sour cream at freezing (will do so when reheating, think that is part of the secret). Anyway, couldn't be more impressed for such a simple recipe. We had an extremely fresh head of cabbage, think that is partially what made it so good. Make sure you make this one!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!


Yummy! The house smelled so good while it was cooking we could hardly wait the 20 minutes it took to simmer. We added a cup of chopped, cooked chicken and along with garlic bread it made a quick, hearty and delicious meal.
