Instant Pot Tomato Bisque
Instant Pot Tomato Bisque
The greatest when you’re in a rush is Instant Pot Tomato Bisque because it’s so simple to make. Family and friends love this filling and healthful soup!
This recipe is ideal for the chilly winter nights since it is warm and comforting. This soup dish is a staple of our winter meals.
Instant Pot Tomato Bisque cooks way faster than its stovetop and crockpot versions. And that is the exact reason why I opted for this recipe over the weekend.
I was in a hurry to cook something for lunch because my best friend paid me a surprise visit. But I did not want to go out and despite being in a hurry, I wanted a healthy home-cooked meal for everyone in the house. Good thing, I have just stocked up on cherry tomatoes!
I just took around 30 minutes to complete my meal. However, the final product was so thick and creamy that you wouldn’t believe I worked on it for a very long period. Compared to the price I would have paid if I had simply purchased them from a restaurant, I was able to get all of these for less money overall!
This would go great as a side to a grilled cheese sandwich, even for youngsters. The blend of sauces and spices brings out the tastes of the veggies. The color is also enticing! Try it right away!
What is the difference between tomato soup and tomato bisque:
Both terms are being used interchangeably oftentimes. But a “bisque” usually refers to something made with seafood that is blended smoothly with the rest of the soup. It is thicker than a soup, but both may contain the same ingredients.
