  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic finely chopped or minced
  • cup Celery diced
  • 2 Carrots diced
  • 2 Onions diced
  • Diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Salt enough to season
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1.5 tablespoons Dried herbs Use a mix of dried basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano
  • 10 ounces Fresh Tortellini (I have used spinach and ricotta) see notes for details
  • 3 cups Vegetable stock (or bouillon)
  • cup Sweet Corn fresh or canned
  • ¼ cup Heavy cream (or single cream)

To Garnish

  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan grated
  • 3-4 Basil Leaves roughly chopped


  • Start by hitting 'Saute' on the Instant Pot. Once hot, add the olive oil and finely chopped garlic.
  • Saute the garlic for a minute and then add the chopped celery, carrots, onions.
  • Saute the onion, celery, carrots for 3 minutes until aromatic.
  • Add the dried herb seasoning, salt, and pepper, followed by the diced tomatoes and the vegetable broth.
  • Give it all a good mix.
  • Close the lid of the Instant Pot and pressure cook for 5 minutes. Once 5 minutes are done, quick-release the pressure (manual release) and open the lid.
  • Add sweet corn kernels and heavy cream.
  • Add the tortellini to the Instant Pot. Set the Instant Pot to the 'Saute' function and simmer for 4-5 minutes, keeping the Instant Pot covered with a lid (any regular pot lid will do).
  • Once the tortellini is cooked through, your Instant Pot tortellini soup is ready. Add chopped fresh basil for more flavor and sprinkle parmesan over the tortellini soup before serving.



  • Dried tortellini - If using dried instead of fresh tortellini, add it before pressure cooking.
  • Add sausage - For a non-vegetarian version, crumble some Italian sausage (or any sausage you like). Saute along with the celery, onion, and carrots. 
  • Add more veggies - Additional veggies you can add are pumpkin, zucchini, sweet potato, etc.
