Description

This easy Instant Pot / Slow Cooker Tomato Soup recipe makes a nutrient-packed, comforting soup for lunch or dinner that will bring back childhood memories. Paleo and Whole30 compliant with a Low FODMAP option.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • ½ cup leek, dark green leaves only, finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots (about ½ lb), diced
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth (Paleo, Whole30 & Low FODMAP)
  • 228 oz cans diced tomatoes + their juice, or 6 cups common tomatoes + their juices, chopped (for low FODMAP)*
  • 2 ½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp fennel seed
  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • Freshly-ground black pepper, fresh chopped parsley or basil, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

INSTANT POT INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Hit “Sauté” on your 6-quart Instant Pot or 8-quart Instant Pot and add the garlic-infused olive oil to the pot. Once the display reads “Hot,” add the chopped leek and carrots and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  2. Hit “Cancel” on the Instant Pot. Add chicken bone broth to the Instant Pot, wait about 15 seconds, and if needed, scrape the bottom of the pot clean with a plastic spoon.
  3. Add the 2 cans of diced tomatoes and their juice (or 6 cups of chopped common tomatoes and their juice for low FODMAP), salt, dried chives, Italian seasoning, ground black pepper and fennel seed to the Instant Pot and stir until combined. 
  4. Close the lid and set the pressure release valve to “Sealing.” Press the “Pressure Cook” button and set the timer for 15 minutes.
  5. Once the cooking cycle has completed, quick release the pressure. Open lid and allow the soup to cool for a few minutes. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth or to your desired consistency. Add coconut cream and stir. Taste the soup and adjust seasonings as desired. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper and/or freshly chopped parsley or basil (optional). Serve and enjoy.

SLOW COOKER INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place a large skillet on the stove top on medium high heat and add the garlic-infused olive oil. Once the skillet is hot, add the chopped leek and carrots and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour chicken bone broth into the skillet and scrape up anything on the bottom of the pan. Remove skillet from heat. Pour skillet contents into a slow cooker (I use a 6-quart Crock-Pot), using a heat resistant spatula to scrape every piece of leek into the slow cooker.
  2. Add the 2 cans of diced tomatoes and their juice (or 6 cups of chopped common tomatoes and their juice for low FODMAP), salt, dried chives, Italian seasoning, ground black pepper and fennel seed to the slow cooker and stir until combined. 
  3. Set slow cooker timer for 6-8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
  4. Once the cooking time is finished, turn off slow cooker and remove lid, allowing the soup to cool for a few minutes. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth or to your desired consistency. Add coconut cream and stir. Taste the soup and adjust seasonings as desired. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper and/or freshly chopped parsley or basil (optional). Serve and enjoy.

Notes

*If you eat a low FODMAP diet but find that you are able to tolerate the FODMAP fructose, then the amount of canned tomatoes called for in this recipe may be tolerable for you. If not, use 6 cups of common tomatoes, which are FODMAP free according to Monash University’s Low FODMAP Diet App. It’s a bit more work, but the soup will be just as yummy, I promise.
