Upon first bite, I was smitten. And my partner and I fought over who gets the most broth! It tastes so similar to the Maryland Crab Soup that I grew up with, minus the crab of course.
Unlike nearly all the recipes on this site, we never tweaked the original, because I am sure it could not taste better. And I crave it, made just like this.
Why you’ll love this Easy Instant Pot Tomato Soup Recipe:
- it's sooo simple
- is amazing as a side or a main when you add shrimp or chicken

- it's addicting
And truthfully, I didn't even like tomatoes before this recipe. That makes this Instant Pot Tomato Soup a game changer for sure.
What to know before you start:
It takes time for the instant pot to come to pressure.
I added 10 minutes to the “cooking time” to account for that.
You can also make this in a large pot on the stove. Simply bring all ingredients to simmer with lid cracked until the vegetables are soft.
If adding shrimp, they don’t require the entire cycle of coming to pressure and cooking for 1 minute.
If I’m available, I turn off the instant pot once I hear the liquid come to a rolling boil (usually before coming to pressure).
By the time the steam is released and the soup cools, the shrimp are well-cooked.
Use leftover ingredients for two other tasty recipes on this site!
If you missed this earlier, I made this soup with leftover ingredients. Make the Easy Paella Recipe and Northwest Beef Stew in the same week to prevent food waste and make life easier. They taste very different despite similar ingredients — so fun!
