Instant Pot Supplies
- Instant Pot Inner Pot - I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
- Silicone Lid for Instant Pot- I'm not sure how I lived without this one. Having a silicone lid for my Instant Pot has made life so much easier. It is perfect for adding ingredients a day or two ahead of time.

Can I Get a Burn Notice Cooking Tomato Gnocchi Soup in my Instant Pot?
One of the biggest mistakes a lot of newbies make when cooking in their Instant Pot is that they end up getting a burn notice on their food, and that includes soup too.
This usually happens when there isn’t enough liquid in the instant pot.
Remember that your instant pot tends to heat things up pretty quickly and if you don’t add enough liquid in there, you might end up burning the food or reducing the liquid.
In some cases, the pressure in the instant pot won’t even build correctly and your food might end up under-cooked.
How Can I Thicken the Soup in my Instant Pot?
Okay, so now that you know you need to have enough liquid in your instant pot, you might be confused about how to achieve the right texture for your meals.
If you’re someone who doesn't like their soup all on the thin side, and prefer a thicker texture, well, you could still do that too.
After the soup is all done, open the lid and add a thickener slurry (such as cornstarch) into the mix and keep mixing while keeping your instant pot on the saute mode. Do this until the soup thickens and reaches your desired consistency.
Can I Reheat the Soup in My Instant Pot?
Do you like to batch make your foods and then store them for later in your freezer?
You might have some soup stocked up that you’re planning to get out for tonight’s dinner, and wondering if you could use your instant pot to reheat that.
Well, yes, you can do that too. All you need to do is thaw it first and then turn on the saute option in your instant pot and allow it to simmer for a few minutes.
Serving Ideas & Suggestions
This hearty and comforting Tomato Gnocchi Soup can easily be a nice filling meal for your dinner.
If you’re planning on serving it when you have some friends over or for a special dinner with your spouse, you could take it up a notch by teaming it up with some fresh and crusty garlic bread.
You could also serve with grilled veggies (think zucchini, bell peppers, onions and carrots) or chicken on the side.
And if you’re willing to do a bit more, try your hand at a nice Italian salad to go with it.

Instant Pot Tomato Gnocchi Soup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large sweet onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 28-ounce can of stewed tomatoes, chopped
- 6 ounces tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon chopped basil
- 1 teaspoon dry oregano
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- Store-bought gnocchi, (usually found in the refrigerated section)
- Fresh Parmesan cheese - to top soup
- Croutons, optional
- Crusty bread, optional
- Bread sticks, optional
- Crackers, optional
- Press the saute button on the Instant Pot, and add the butter.
- When the butter melts, add the onion, and saute until golden brown (caramelized).
- Turn off the saute setting, and add the minced garlic to the hot Instant Pot.
- Stir the garlic into the onion, and let it sit for 5 minutes.
- Add the chicken broth, and let the onion and garlic sit for a couple of minutes in the liquid.
- Stir the ingredients and scrape the bottom of the pot to deglaze it by loosening the stuck bits on the bottom.
- Add the chopped stewed tomatoes, and stir well.
- Add the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, basil, oregano, brown sugar, garlic salt, and seasoned pepper, and stir well to blend.
- Place the lid on the Instant Pot, and set the pressure valve to sealing.
- Press the soup button (if your Instant Pot has one), which is the same as manual high pressure for 30 minutes.
- Do a quick release, by carefully turning the pressure valve from sealing to venting.
- When the pressure float valve drops down, it is safe to open the lid.
- Add heavy cream, and stir.
- Add the gnocchi and stir into the soup. Most fresh gnocchi only need to cook for 1 - 2 minutes. After a couple of minutes, the Gnocchi should be done, tender, but still a little firm.
- Place in soup bowl to serve, and sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Serve with your favorite croutons, bread or crackers. Enjoy!
One way to know that the gnocchi are done is when they stop being at the bottom and begin to float on the surface of the soup.
