  • 1 tbsp organic olive oil
  • 1.5 cups chopped red onion
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • 28 oz can diced unsalted tomatoes
  • 1/2-1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • fresh parsley optional


  • Turn your Instant Pot to the sauté function. Add 1 tbsp olive oil, add 1.5 cups chopped red onion, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 3/8 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp hot smoked paprika. Sauté for 8 minutes, stirring.
  • Add 4 minced garlic cloves, sauté an additional minute. Deglaze any brown onion from the pot by adding the vegetable broth and scraping the sides with a spatula.
  • Add 28 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained, and 1/2 cup vegetable stock (add more if you want a thinner soup). Set to HIGH pressure for 15 minutes. Naturally release pressure for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup whole milk. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup to the consistency you like.
  • Optional: Top with fresh parsley, shaved parmesan cheese, and black pepper.


Top Tips For A Light and Creamy Tomato Soup
  • Use the best quality tomatoes available
  • Use more vegetable stock, if you want a thinner consistency.
  • To make it vegan, substitute the whole milk for your favorite non-dairy milk, or leave it out, and add a bit more vegetable stock.
  • Stick with canned tomatoes. Especially if you're making this soup in the winter. Canned tomatoes have a consistent flavor. They’re canned while fresh, which gives them a sweet flavor year round.
  • Top with fresh parsley, black pepper, and Parmesan.
