Pressure Cooker Cream of Tomato Soup

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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.
