Creamy Tomato Soup


2 quarts vegetable broth

2 28-oz. cans diced tomatoes

1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes

3 cups chopped carrots

2 large yellow onions, quartered

1 large clove garlic chopped

3/4 cup raw cashews

3 large pitted dates

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)

2 tsp. seasoned salt

2 Tbsp. dried oregano

1 Tbsp. dried basil

1 tsp. dried thyme

1-2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup fresh basil, oregano or parsley, chopped



Place ingredients (except fresh herbs) and only 1 quart of the veggie broth in an Instapot* or other programmable electric pressure cooker. Set for 10 min on high pressure. Once pressure has released. Blend soup with 2nd quart of veggie broth in high speed blender (you'll have to do this in batches) and blend until very smooth. Pour everything back in the pot and heat on low for a few minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Just before serving add the fresh herbs or a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar. The benefit of the pressure cooker is that you can add all the ingredients in the morning, and come home to warm soup that just needs to be blended!

If not using a pressure cooker put all ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer until tender.
