  • 1 tbsp - vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp - butter
  • 1 large - yellow or white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 kg - tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tsp - fresh thyme, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 1/4 tsp - black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup - vegetable broth or water
  • 3/4 cup - heavy cream

How to Make Fiery Tomato Soup

  • Heat the oil and butter in the pressure cooker over medium high heat until the butter melts.
  • Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 5 mins.
  • Add the tomatoes and their juices, thyme, salt, pepper, broth and stir to mix.
  • Lock on the lid and bring to pressure over high heat, about 4 mins.
  • Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and let sit for 10 mins to finish cooking (this step also lets the cooker cool down so that the later release of steam is minimal).
  • With the steam vent pointed away from your face, gently release any remaining pressure. Let cool enough to remove lid.
  • Use immersion blender to puree soup (or transfer soup to blender or food processor and puree in smaller batches to avoid burning yourself).
  • If there are chunks of tomato peel still remaining, strain the soup.
  • If using right away, place soup in a large pan and stir in cream. Reheat gently without boiling, then add garnish of choice and serve.
  • If not using right away, store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Then stir in the cream, heat and serve.
