Why Homemade tomato soup is better than Canned soup
Homemade Tomato soup is better than canned soup. Well it certainly is in my opinion. Not only do you get to control exactly what goes into your tomato soup recipe, you can make sure the ingredients are not processed which is healthier for the body.
Making tomato soup in the Instant Pot means you’ll get many more servings than you would from a can and you’ll have plenty left over for all the family to enjoy.
Do I Need To Change Instant Pot Cooking Times If I Double My Recipe?
You can double this recipe and batch cook plenty of tomato soup in one go. You don’t need to change any of the cooking times. The only difference is that your. pressure cooker may take longer to come to pressure. Cooking times remain the same.
Why Do Natural Release When Cooking Instant Pot Tomato Soup?
The reason you need to naturally release the pressure after cooking this delicious and easy homemade soup recipe is because soup can sometimes spew out of the vent and splatter everywhere. A natural release will ensure the steam exits the Instant Pot without making a huge mess.
