This is definitely one of my favorite soups. It’s delicious and low in points.
This recipe makes 4 servings (about 1 cup per serving) at 2 points per serving for blue, green and purple.
This soup can be made in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop. I’ll give directions for both.
Of course I prefer making it in the Instant Pot because it’s so easy. This soup isn’t a difficult recipe to begin with, but cooking it in the Instant Pot made it even easier!
This is one of my favorite soups to take to work for lunch. It reheats really well and I never get sick of it.
I used fire roasted tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes. They give it a great flavor.
There’s not too much I needed to do to make this recipe low in points. One thing was I didn’t use a lot of butter, only 1 tablespoon.
Also, instead of using heavy cream I used fat-free half and half.
This recipe is also easy to double, I’ve done it many times. I didn’t need to change the cook time in the Instant Pot.
Here is a video of me making the soup:

Yield: 4 servings (2 points per serving for blue, green and purple)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 (14.5 oz.) cans fire roasted tomatoes
- 14.5 oz. chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
- 1/2 cup fat-free half and half
Set Instant Pot to saute. Add butter to pot. Once it has melted add the onion and minced garlic. The lid stays off for this portion.
Saute onions and garlic for 3 minutes. Turn pot off.
Add the fire roasted tomatoes, chicken broth and tablespoon of basil.
Secure and lock the lid. Make sure the lever is set to seal.
Press the manual button and set to 5 minutes.
Once it is done cooking, use the quick release. Once the steam is released carefully remove the lid.
Use an immersion blender to puree the soup. If you don’t have an immersion blender you can use a regular blender, just let the soup cool down before putting it in the blender.
Stir in the fat free half and half. Garnish with additional basil if desired.
In a medium pot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in onions and garlic. Continue stirring for 3 minutes.
Add tomatoes, chicken broth and fresh basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove from heat. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup.
Add fat free half and half and additional basil, if desired.
