What Are The Ingredients Needed For This Creamy Tomato Gnocchi Soup?

This hearty and creamy soup recipe is easy and takes less than an hour from start to finish:

  • olive oil - for frying the onion and garlic, you can also use any mild oil you have on hand
  • onion - any onion will work for this recipe, i usually use regular cooking onion
  • garlic - if you don’t have fresh garlic, you can use ½-1 teaspoon of garlic powder as a substitute
  • vegetable broth - this is the main liquid component of the soup
  • diced tomatoes - a large can with the juices
  • crushed tomatoes - a large can, this will help thicken the soup and make it saucy
  • herbs and spices - I used Italian seasoning, salt, and fresh basil for both garnish and flavor
  • gnocchi - for this recipe, I use one package of the store-bought one, but you can use homemade or frozen as well
  • heavy cream - this will help to thicken your soup and give it its creamy deliciousness
  • shredded parmesan cheese - freshly grated (always) for a nice sprinkle on top!
  • croutons (optional) - these add a nice crunch to this soup recipe

How do you thicken creamy tomato soup?

If you want to thicken this Creamy tomato basil gnocchi soup, you can easily do so. Adding a little bit of flour or cornstarch slurry to the soup and stirring well is a fast and simple way to thicken the soup. Add a little at a time and stir so you don’t accidentally add too much. You can always thicken it more as you need to if you still want to change the consistency. Because of the addition of crushed tomatoes and cream, combined with the starches from cooking the gnocchi in the soup this soup is alraedy naturally very thick so wait until it is finished before you decide to add any thickeners.

What can I use instead of heavy cream for tomato soup?

Heavy cream is such an easy option to use for adding richness to the soup, but you can also use a bit of half and half, some milk and butter, cottage cheese, a dollop of sour cream, or a splash of milk. You can also completely omit and the soup will still be very tasty!

Why is tomato soup so healthy?

The antioxidants and vitamins that are in tomatoes are what makes it healthy. This easy dish is also loaded with dairy and other simple ingredients.

How do I store leftover tomato soup?

You’re very likely to have leftover soup, so storing it the right way is key. Let the soup cool down all the way, and then add the leftovers to an airtight container. Keep the container in the fridge, and consume within 2-3 days. Alternatively, you can also freeze in freeer safe containers or bags for up to 6 months

How to reheat leftover soup?

The best way to reheat refridgerated soup is low and slow on the stove. Reheat until the soup is hot all the way through, and then serve in your favorite soup bowl and add your favorite toppings. Be sure to stir the soup while it’s heating so it doesn't burn in the pot. Just remember that the heated soup will be hot - so don’t burn your mouth with your first bite!

If the soup was frozen, place the frozen soup in a large pot with about 2 tablespoons of water, then cover with a lid and cook over medium low, this allows the steam to help melt the soup, and will be a quicker reheat.
