Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes
Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes are cooked in a half hour from start to finish! They come out fluffy, smooth, and perfectly cooked every time!
- 6 medium sweet potatoes
- 1.5 cups water
- steamer basket
Wash your sweet potatoes with fresh water and scrub them to remove any dirt. Use a paring knife to cut off any blemishes.
Pour the water into the Instant Pot, then place the sweet potatoes into the steamer basket and lower it into the Instant Pot.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and secure it. Move the steam valve to the seal position.
Use the manual function of your instant pot and set it to high pressure. Set the timer for 16 minutes.
Allow the instant pot to come up to pressure. The instant pot will count down the time. When the time has finished, the Instant Pot should beep.
Let the instant pot do a natural release for 12 minutes. This means you do not do anything for 12 minutes. It will naturally release the pressure.
When 12 minutes has passed, carefully move the value to "release". (Remember this can be hot, so be careful!)
Once all the pressure is released, remove the lid and serve.
The sweet potatoes cooked at this time are perfect for adding to casseroles and pureeing.
If you would like to eat the sweet potato as a “baked” sweet potatoes, lessen the cook time and release time by 2-3 minutes each.
