How Do You Make Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi Not Mushy?

Cook it in the air fryer! As long as the gnocchi is coated in olive oil first, it will cook up tender on the inside and crisp on the outside. No defrosting necessary. If you do not have an air fryer, just place the gnocchi on top of some parchment paper while roasting it in the oven. This will prevent it from becoming mushy.
