  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 (796mL) cans diced tomatoes in their juices
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 5 basil leaves (optional add-in) plus more for garnish

Toppings, optional

  • Baguette, to serve
  • Swiss cheese, to serve


  • Add all ingredients to Instant Pot in the order in which they are listed, except for heavy cream, basil and toppings.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook for 3 minutes.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Meanwhile, if adding toppings, cut baguette into 1-inch cubes and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then top with a bit of grated Swiss cheese. Broil in the oven for a couple of minutes until cheese is melted, watching closely so it doesn't burn.
  • Once lid is safe to open, stir in heavy cream and basil leaves if using, then blend soup with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy. Top soup with cheese-covered baguette cubes and extra basil leaves, then serve and enjoy!
