Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup
Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup is a quick and easy meal ready in 30 minutes using canned tomatoes, basil, carrots, onions, garlic, and stock.
pressure cooker tomato soup
chopped, yellow onion
2 to 3 medium sized
crushed, fire-roasted tomatoes
I use Muir Glen or Hunts
can substitute .25 cup fresh, chopped if preferred
bay leaf, split in half
Turn on your Instant Pot and press the “Saute” button. When the inner pot is HOT, add the oil. Add the carrots and onion, and cook until they are tender.
Add the garlic and tomato paste, cook and stir until hot and aromatic.
Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, basil, cayenne, and bay leaf.
Press the “Cancel” button. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and twist to lock. Double check to make sure the venting knob is in the “Sealing” position.
Press the “Manual” button, High Pressure, and use the + and – buttons to adjust the time to 5 minutes.
When the pot beeps allow the pressure to release Naturally, it will take about 10 minutes.
Remove the lid and then remove the bay leaf. Use an immersion blender to puree until smooth.
Adjust seasonings, then ladle soup into bowls and garnish with chopped basil.
I use an
Immersion/Stick/Hand Blender like this one
If you do not have an immersion blender, you can blend your soup in batches using a blender. Be careful, it is VERY HOT!!
For extra creamy Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup, add cream before serving.
If you do not have an Instant Pot, follow the stove-top directions in the
Roasted Tomato Rosemary Soup
This recipe is made using a
6 quart Instant Pot
For a vegan soup, substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock.
If you are not following a Whole30 or Paleo diet feel free to sprinkle on some shaved Parmesan as shown in the first image or some
Crunchy Garlic Croutons
Garlic Dinner Rolls

Serve with a
Shrimp Grilled Cheese
Pesto Grilled Cheese
