  • 1⁄4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp. baking soda

  • 1⁄4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • Add tomatoes and their juice, potato, salt, baking soda, and water to the pressure cooker. Close and lock the lid.
  • Turn the heat up to high. When the cooker reaches pressure, lower the heat to the minimum needed to maintain pressure. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes at high pressure.
