Nordstrom’s Tomato Soup in the Instant Pot
Making the soup is super easy. You simply sauté onions and carrots in the liner of your electric pressure cooker, in some olive oil, until they are turning soft. Then you add the tomatoes, dried basil, and the chicken stock and go! Because the pot is already warmed up from cooking, it takes less time to come to pressure and then it is only a 5 minute pressure cooking time.  After the NPR time, open carefully and add the cream or half-n-half. You could certainly use coconut milk, and vegetable broth if you wanted to make this recipe vegan friendly.
