Super easy homemade Instant Pot tomato soup recipe

There are few dinners more comforting than a big mug of warm tomato soup.   Bonus points if it’s homemade!  And if you have an Instant Pot, homemade soup is a breeze. REALLY!  Yes, you can make homemade Instant Pot tomato soup.  It’s easy peasy.


I love making homemade soup. I usually follow my grandmother’s model of throw whatever you have on hand in a pot and let it simmer away into something comforting and delicious.

I wasn’t sure what to put in my tomato soup besides well…tomatoes, though. After a quick Google search I got to work and made up the recipe as I went along.

Serve this with grilled cheese sandwiches for the ultimate comfort meal.  Or a simple green salad for a lighter touch.

This homemade tomato soup recipe was a big hit!  My daughter’s best friend was over for dinner and said I should be a chef at Panera!  That’s high praise from her!

No Instant Pot?  You can make it on the stovetop in a large stockpot.  (But, seriously, consider an Instant Pot! They are awesome!)
