Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes


4 cups cauliflower florets

3 cups vegetable broth

One 28-oz. can diced tomatoes (not drained)

1 cup chopped roasted red bell pepper (previously packed in water)

1 tbsp. chopped garlic

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. tomato paste

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

Optional topping: chopped fresh basil


Add all ingredients to an Instant Pot. Gently stir to mix.

Seal with lid. Press Manual/Pressure Cook, and set for 8 minutes. (The Instant Pot will preheat for about 20 minutes.)

Let cool down naturally for 10 minutes in Keep Warm mode. (Instant Pot automatically goes into this mode after cook time ends.)

Press Cancel. Vent to release any remaining steam.

Once cool, transfer soup to a blender, and blend until smooth and uniform, working in batches as needed. 


HG Tips: If you have an immersion blender, use it to blend the soup right in the Instant Pot! Want to give your soup a smoky flavor? Add a little smoked paprika. Or if you prefer things a little spicier, mix in some crushed red pepper flakes.

We love how easy this is to makeclick to see!

Amazon Must-Have: Time-Saving Kitchen Tool!

KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender

If you don't have an immersion blender yet, know this: They’re THE BEST when it comes to making pureed soups like today's recipe. For one thing, you don't have to wait for the soup to cool to blend it, then take your chances hoping it's cool enough before you attempt to blitz it in a stand blender. (Anyone else who's had hot soup explode all over their kitchen knows what we're talking about.) It also makes it easy to control how smooth you want the texture—blend it up a bit at a time, stopping once you reach your desired texture. This immersion blender gets a lot of use at the Hungryland test kitchen... Get yours today!
