I Tried Making Potato Potage Soup with Jagariko Sticks

Calbee is a Japanese snack food manufacturer with an overwhelming share in the market of Japan.

Speaking of Calbee, Jagariko and Potato Chips are 2 potato snacks that represent the company loved by many people, both adults and children.

Today, I actually bought Calbee Jagariko Potato Stick Salad Flavor at a supermarket near my house, for I wanted to try making a soup dish with the fries.

The potato stick Jagariko is made by deep-frying steamed potatoes kneaded with tiny bits of carrot and parsley.

It tastes good with a pleasant crispy texture, because of which, some Japanese like creating food recipes using the Japariko fries and post them on the internet.

Viewing one of them, I got curious about it, and that is why I decided to make it. And that is potato potage soup using Jagariko fries.

According to the recipe on Rakuten, I prepared the following ingredients to make the potato potage soup.

The resulting soup unexpectedly tastes pretty good. It isn’t weak in taste with a nice thick consistency from potatoes. To make the soup with another flavor of Jagariko may also be interesting.
