  • 3 cups frozen potato tots
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • 1 cup chopped parsnip
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place potato tots on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden and crispy, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add carrot, parsnip, celery and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in broth, chicken (or turkey), garlic powder, onion powder, marjoram and sage. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in peas and half-and-half.
  4. Arrange the potato tots over the surface of the soup. Serve topped with parsley.

I LOVE this soup. Added a bit more salt. Actually you could salt the tots as they cook.....

Made the turkey version of this last night. Delicious! My husband prefers stew to soup but he really enjoyed it too. The tater tots were a surprise to him!
