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.

This is my new favorite! It tastes similar to the classic canned soup but with real ingredients and no weird processed flavor. It’s so simple too. Thank you Brandi for another winner!

Where I live it's currently -21F degrees. I needed something warm and cozy and this was perfect! I followed the directions exactly and added cream at the end. It is better than anything I've had from any store or restaurant. Definitely get good tomatoes for this because the tomato flavor shines and isn't muddled by other ingredients like other tomato soup recipes.

This soup is soo good! Perfect for when you want a quick, hearty, flavorful soup. I had two servings and am trying to stop myself from a third at the moment hahaha. I kept it dairy-free, but I appreciate that you also include an option if you want to make it creamy along with all the other notes. Thanks again!
