I’m so excited to share my first Instant pot recipe! I’ve been loving my new kitchen toy and it’s transformed the ease with which I meal prep and plan! I made these sweet potatoes the other night and they turned out so delicious, I knew I had to share! The spices are sweet and savory at the same time, and they make the perfect and nutritious accompaniment to any meal. I hope you enjoy!
Makes 4 servings
4 medium sized sweet potatoes
1 T olive oil
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp paprika
salt to taste
1/2 cup water
Wash, scrub, and dice up your sweet potatoes, then toss evenly with the olive oil and spices. Use the trivet at the bottom of your instant pot, then add the potatoes along with the 1/2 cup of water.
Lock your instant pot lid and make sure the valve is set to steam. Manually set it to 6 minutes, then forget about it!
I did the quick release to release the pressure once the machine beeped and made sure the pressure had been completely released. Then open the pot and scoop out your sweet potatoes into a bowl. They should be soft enough to mash with a fork and viola! You’ve got delicious smashed sweet potatoes.
Serve these with some chicken and veggies, or just eat as a snack because they are THAT good! I hope you enjoy!
