Super Fast Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash – One Pot Recipe


Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash - Paleo Recipe

So you have a sweet potato or two hanging around that you want to eat. This recipe will get you from cutting to eating in about 25 minutes. This recipe is tested for about a pound of peeled and cubed sweet potatoes. Figure two medium size sweet potatoes or one large one. It will take you a couple minutes to peel and cut the potatoes, yet the prepping ultimately keeps the cooking time down.

This is a 2-step Instant Pot recipe, meaning we use the pressure cooking mode to cook the potatoes, and then later finish cooking the potatoes in sauté mode. From start to finish you will be able to create a fresh and flavorful sweet potato mash in about 25 minutes, with only a few minutes of attentive cooking time.

What you need:

  • Instant Pot pressure cooker
  • 1 to 2 pounds of sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ cubes
  • 1 cup of water
  • Colander to drain the potatoes
  • Oven mits or kitchen towels to remove and handle inner pot
  • 1 to 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • salt and seasonings to taste
