How To Make Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes
You will not believe how easy it is to make mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot. And, you need very few ingredients.
Start with 6-8 russet potatoes. Then, wash, peel, and cut them into medium-sized chunks. You can leave the skins on if you prefer. They cook just as well. I go back and forth with this. Sometimes I like the peels and sometimes I don’t.
Put your steamer rack in the bottom of the Instant Pot, add 1 cup of water, and place all the potatoes into your pressure cooker. Now, place the lid on your instant pot, lock it, and set the valve to seal. Choose “Steam” and set the time for 12 minutes. Remember, it usually takes about 8-10 minutes for the IP to come to pressure.
Once the timer goes off you simply do a “quick release” to remove the pressure from your Instant Pot. Unlock and remove the lid then transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
Pour in the milk, add the garlic powder, and either my Cashew Sour Cream or Easy Vegan Tofu Sour Cream. You could just add a little salt, mashed the potatoes, and call it day. But, what’s the fun in that?
Finally, use a potato masher and mash until you get the consistency you desire. But, my favorite method is to use my Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer and whip them. It makes them so smooth and creamy.
Finally, all that’s left to do is taste and check the seasoning. Remember, flavor ingredients are simply my preference and what worked when I made them. Feel the freedom to season to your own taste.
That’s it! It’s time to serve and enjoy these incredible Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes! Your guest will be so impressed and have no clue these are actually healthy and VEGAN!
