Instant Pot Carrot Soup
Today's Instant Pot Recipe is a very simple, and delicious carrot soup. This soup comes out flavorful and thick, without adding any thickeners.
This pressure cooker carrot soup is a healthy soup recipe, and is vegetarian & vegan if you use vegetable broth.
When I make this carrot soup recipe for my family, I like to use chicken broth for a richer flavor.
The Carrots Make The Soup
I know, this is carrot soup, so of course the carrots make it! What I mean by this is that the better the carrots taste, the better the soup will taste.
Try to get the freshest, sweetest carrots you can find. You can use frozen carrots if you need to in a pinch.
A few words about the onion
I like to use a yellow onion, as I enjoy the stronger onion flavor. You can use a sweet onion if you like as well.
Whichever onion you use, please be sure to sauté it until it just starts to brown. This gives the onion an almost grilled flavor.
Much like the way onions are cooked in fajitas, that unmistakable aroma is also carried into the flavor.
I think this really takes this pressure cooker carrot soup to a higher level.

Instant Pot Carrot Soup is a light and delicious vegetarian soup made with flavorful carrots and vegetable stock. So easy and tasty!
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1 small Yellow Onion, chopped
- 2 lbs Fresh Carrots, chopped
- 2 cloves Garlic, pressed or minced
- ¼ teaspoon Thyme Leaves (not ground)
- ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
- ¼ teaspoon Pepper
- 4 cups Low Sodium Vegetable Broth (or chicken)
- Fresh Dill or other Herbs
- Sour Cream
Have everything ready to go before you start cooking the soup.
Turn on the Sauté setting. When hot, add the oil and butter.
Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it starts to brown.
Add the carrots and garlic. Cook for about a minute, stirring frequently so the garlic doesn't burn.
Add the thyme, salt, pepper, and broth. Stir.
Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial, then the +/- button or dial to select 5 minutes. High Pressure. The pot will take several minutes to come to pressure.
When the cook cycle has finished, turn off the pot and let it sit undisturbed for 10 minutes (10 minute natural release). Then turn the steam release knob to the Venting position to release the remaining steam/pressure.
Be careful and keep an eye on it in case soup comes out of the vent. If it does, close it and release the steam in smaller bursts.
When the pin in the lid drops back down, open the lid.
Use an immersion Blender to puree the soup in the pot.
Serve with a dill (or other herb) garnish, and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
