Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Instant Pot Tomato Soup

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

A grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup are the ultimate in comfort foods, and this Instant Pot Tomato Soup Recipe is sure to satisfy your soul!


  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable stock*
  • 3 lbs (1.3kg) fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, julienned (+ extra for garnish)


  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 for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and vegetables develop some color. Add garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
  2. Pour in the 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 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!
