Ingredients

  • 45 large carrots peeled and chopped (about 23 cups)
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic (I use 34 cloves)
  • 2 14.5 oz cans diced fire roasted tomatoes with liquid (Or whole or plain tomatoes, whatever you have on hand)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, stems removed and roughly chopped (1 tbsp dried basil)
  • 23 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (less if using table salt)
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. On the high saute function of the Instant Pot, heat olive oil. Add in carrots, onion, celery, and salt. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until onions begin to soften. Add garlic and continue to cook until garlic becomes fragrant, about 1 more minute.
  2. Add thyme, basil, pepper, and tomato paste and stir to coat veggies.
  3. Add in tomatoes and broth, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to entire nothing is sticking to the liner.
  4. Set the Instant Pot to high manual pressure for 15 minutes, cover with vent on “sealing” and allow to come to pressure. Once done, quick release the pressure.
  5. Puree the soup, using either an immersion blender, food processor, or blender.
  6. Serve hot and with crusty bread/grilled cheese sandwiches/crackers if desired.
