Pressure Cooker Cream of Tomato Soup


Pressure cooking is making a comeback! This comfort soup is a perfect example of why. It is all-day-cooking-taste with little effort. This is one of my childhood memories of after kindergarten (half-day) at Grandma's house. If you have an abundance of homegrown tomatoes this is a good excuse to freeze them.

  • 4 cups peeled, seeded, and cored tomatoes with juice

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Combine tomatoes with juice, chicken broth, and salt together in a pressure cooker. Cover and bring to medium pressure according to manufacturer's instructions for 3 minutes. Carefully choose quick-release to release pressure and remove lid.

  2. Stir baking soda into tomato mixture until no longer bubbling. Add milk, cream, salt, and pepper to tomato mixture. Blend soup with a hand-held blender. Heat soup over medium-low heat, stirring often, until heated through, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use home-canned, frozen, or commercially canned tomatoes.

Water can be used in place of chicken broth for a vegetarian option.

You can use a regular blender if you don't have a hand-held. If using regular blender, cool soup before blending.
