This is a classic soup a lot of us group eating. You will never touch that Campbell’s soup version again after this! Making your own right at home only requires a handful of key ingredients.

This dish is also vegan friendly, vegetarian, and gluten-free.

What Type of Tomatoes to Use

I love to use organic crushed canned tomatoes. You can typically find these at most grocery stores.

You can use whole peeled tomatoes in a can, but I would crush them first. You can also use fire roasted canned tomatoes for a nice kick!

For fresh tomatoes, use 3-4 pounds (chopped) and pressure cook for 20 minutes with 25 minutes of natural release of steam.

How to Make it a Creamy Soup

The flavor of this recipe is classic and traditional. If you want to make the soup creamy you can add 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream or 4 ounces of cream cheese (after the soup has pressure cooked).

How Does the Soup Taste?

The main ingredient is tomatoes so you can expect heavy tomato flavor. I like to season the soup with basil and Italian Seasoning, so you will taste those elements as well. To cut the acidity of the tomato flavor, I add a little sweetener. You can also use sugar. I typically like to use 3-4 teaspoons. Use however much you wish or omit it completely.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place the Instant Pot on the Saute function. Add the olive oil, chopped onions, celery, and carrots.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes until the onions are translucent and fragrant. Add in the garlic and stir.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients: broth, crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, dried basil and sweetener. Stir. If it's your first time making the soup, consider adding the spices and sweetener once the soup has cooked. That way you can taste repeatedly and make adjustments to suit your needs as necessary.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal. Cook for 15 minutes on Manual > High Pressure cooking.
  • When the pot indicates it is finished, allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes.
  • Open the pot. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup and get it creamy. You can use a standard blender if you wish.

MAKE THIS. This soup it is so delicious. I never ate tomato soup. I THOUGHT I didnt care for it. Brandi posted this soup several times with a grilled cheese and I was convinced I needed to try it. I like my soups very thick so I add cauliflower to thicken and make it heavier. This soup is the perfect balance of acidity with an undertone of sweetness. I'm a huge basil fan and Brandi made sure not to disappoint me with the seasonings. I ate this soup 5 day straight in summer. This is also my go to to help me get back into eating better and getting all my veggies is. Make this soup. You'll be sure to love it.

The quickest and easier recipe but still so full of flavor and comfort. I add 1 tbsp of heavy cream for some extra creaminess like Brandi mentions. Perfect for leftovers!

This soup is the absolute best I have ever had/made. Made it for lunch today on a rainy day and I asked my husband (who doesn't like tomato soup) to please try it and he ended up having a bowl himself. So flavorful and I love that its packed with veggies!
