Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup

Easy Tomato Basil Soup

This classic recipe is one that I make often especially after a day of playing in the snow or when we get a craving. It goes good with garlic bread, grilled cheese or crackers. If you want to make it more creamy you can add about 1/2 to 1 cup heavy cream to the mixture. The secret to this tomato soup is blending it together at the end. I use a hand mixer but if you don’t have one you can also use an immersion blender. 

For this recipe, you’ll need an Instant Pot to make it. If you don’t have one I highly suggest one. It’s a quick way to get dinner on the table faster and makes the food tastes delicious. I would suggest using a 6 or 8 quart size because you can fit more in it and gives plenty of room to cook.

How Long is Tomato Basil Soup Good for?

If you have any remaining leftovers store in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-4 days. To eat, just reheat the amount you’re going to eat in the microwave to desired temperature and enjoy. This tomato basil soup also freezes well. Allow to cool down first and then place in a freezer bag for up to 6 months. When ready to eat thaw soup out overnight in the fridge and reheat. May need to add a little bit of cream to soup if needed.

How to Make Tomato Basil Soup in an Instant Pot

Turn your Instant Pot to Saute.

If your tomatoes are large, halve or quarter them, place them in the Instant Pot. Add the garlic, onions, olive oil, and salt and pepper, to the tomatoes and toss together until coated. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring often.

Turn the Instant Pot off and add all remaining ingredients. Lock the lid, turn the steam release vent to ‘sealing’.

Set to the manual setting, for 5 minutes at High Pressure. Once time is up let the pressure drop for an additional 10-15 minutes before opening the lid.

Blend soup using a hand blender in the pot. Add salt and pepper as needed.
