This one pot Vegan Tomato Gnocchi Soup is the ultimate comfort food that takes just 30 minutes to throw together! The best part is the potato gnocchi cooks right in the creamy tomato soup which means you have one less dish to wash and the soup gets an extra boost of creaminess from the starch in the gnocchi! If you're new to gnocchi, this recipe is a great place to start!

Making fresh pesto is so easy! You can use a jar off the store shelf if you want (I recommend this one), but making your own is so simple—and the flavors are so much fresher. Homemade pesto kicks any dish up a notch. You can get my recipe for easy basil pesto here.
Gnocchi cooking time may vary! My frozen gnocchi is usually cooked through in about eight minutes, but start checking them after about six. (Overcooked gnocchi turn to mush. Blech.) Scoop one out, blow on it for a few seconds, and bite into it. Gnocchi should be smooth on the outside and soft on the inside, like a pillowy little dumpling.
No crushed tomatoes? They’re hard to find in some places. You can use tomato sauce for this vegan tomato gnocchi soup instead, but you might want to add an extra pinch of salt. Tomato sauce is cooked longer than crushed tomatoes are, so it doesn’t have quite as much of that fresh tomato flavor.
