How to Make Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup

The instructions are so simple you’ll surely make this more than once! This easy-to-make Instant Pot tomato basil soup is whipped up and ready in under 30 minutes. You can’t go wrong!

  1. Select the “Sauté” function on the Instant Pot® and add olive oil once hot. Add onion, celery, and carrots, and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and vegetables develop some color, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  2. Pour in stock and deglaze the bottom of the pot, gently scraping up any brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon in the process. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes before turning the unit off.
  3. Add tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme, and rosemary, and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Position the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 4 minutes.
  4. When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure. Remove the lid and stir in fresh basil leaves.
  5. Carefully transfer the tomato mixture to a food processor or high-powered blender and process until smooth. (For chunkier results, use an immersion blender instead).
  6. To serve, transfer soup to individual bowls while still hot and garnish with additional fresh basil, if desired. Enjoy!

What to Serve With This Tomato Basil Soup

I love to make my pumpkin chia seed bread or my plain coconut flour bread to go along with this soup—toast up a slice to break into croutons or top with cheese for that comforting grilled cheese accompaniment.

You can also serve this Instant Pot Tomato Basil soup with some crunchy keto crackers!

How to Store Leftover Tomato Basil Soup

You can safely freeze this wonderful soup in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

It also stores well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. If you know me, I don’t like leftovers in the fridge longer than that.
