I Tried Making Potato Potage Soup with Jagariko Sticks
Calbee is a leading Japanese snack food manufacturer with an overwhelming market share in Japan. Speaking of Calbee, loved by many Japanese, both adults and children, Calbee Jagariko and Calbee Potato Chips are 2 potato snacks that represent Japan.
Actually, today I bought the Calbee Jagariko Potato Stick Salad Flavor at a supermarket near my house, for I wanted to try making a soup dish with the potato fries.
The potato stick Jagariko is produced by deep-frying steamed potatoes with tiny bits of carrot and parsley. It tastes great with a pleasant crispy texture, and because of those features, some Japanese like creating their own food recipes using the Japariko fries and post them on the internet.
Viewing one of them, I got curious about it, which is why I decided to make it, potato potage soup using Jagariko fries.
Potato Potage Soup Recipe using Calbee Jagariko Fries
According to the recipe on Rakuten, I prepared the following ingredients to make the potato potage soup.
|Calbee Jagariko Salad (Amazon.com)||About 15 sticks|
|Hot water||50 cc|
|Salt and pepper||A little|
The cooking instructions are quite easy as follows.
|1||Crush 15 sticks or so of the Jagariko fries into tiny pieces using hands and put them into a cup|
|2||Pour boiling water into the cup and wait until the pieces become soft|
|3||Once they become soft, sprinkle some salt and pepper over it and stir well to make it like mashed potatoes|
|4||Add milk little by little to the cup, stirring the mixture well|
|5||Microwave the cup until hot and Enjoy!|
The potato potage soup unexpectedly tastes pretty good. It isn’t weak in taste and has a nice thick consistency from potatoes. It may also be interesting and fun to make the soup with another flavor of Jagariko, I think.
