How To Make Instant Pot Copycat Nordstrom’s Tomato Basil Soup
Place your olive oil into the Instant Pot Bowl, and then press saute. Let the oil heat up for about 30 seconds, and then add your diced onions, shredded carrots, and dried basil.
Saute them for about 4 to 5 minutes, just until the onions get softened. Notice how they almost start to brown.
Then add in the tomatoes, chicken broth, and mix well. Mix in the heavy cream, be careful to scrape the bottom.
Set the timer for 5 minutes of high pressure, using the manual setting. Make sure that the vent is sealed. Let the pressure naturally release. NEVER FORCE a lid off the pressure cooker or Instant Pot. When it’s safe to open, and the lid comes off easily, open and look at your soup. Use your immersion blender and blend until smooth.
SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT MAKING INSTANT POT COPYCAT NORDSTROM’S TOMATO BASIL SOUP
CAN I USE FRESH TOMATOES?
I do not recommend using fresh tomatoes in these recipes; since they are mostly water, you will end up with a watery soup; for best results, use canned tomatoes.
HOW TO THICKEN UP THE SOUP
I used a simple rule of flour and water to thicken up the soup. If you want it thinner, you can omit it. Also, if you want a smoother soup, you can use an Immersion Blender and blend until smooth.
WHAT CAN I SERVE IT WITH?
I love serving it plain, but you know what works amazingly well with Soup is Cornbread. Here are some of my favorite cornbread recipes:
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER SOUP:
If you’re anything like me, there’s always a pot of soup in your fridge. You know that feeling when you just can’t get enough, and it feels like you need to cook up another batch? Well, I’m here to tell all of you how we can store our leftovers, so they don’t go bad. There are two ways: either by storing the soup in an airtight container or freezing it for later use.
You can either reheat the soup in a saucepan or the Instant Pot, heat until warmed through.
How To Freeze:
Freezing soup is a great way to store recipes for future use. If you are making the soup yourself, it’s best to freeze it in small batches so that you can thaw out just what you need without wasting any of your hard work. Here are some tips on how to freeze soup and get the most out of your freezer space!
- Let the soup cool to room temperature.
- Then ladle the soup into freezer safe containers, filling about 2/3 the way full, leaving the soup to expand when frozen.
- Label and date your soup.
For best results, use your soup up within 2 to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, and then reheat in a small saucepan or by using the microwave. Heat until warmed up.
