  • 4-6 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup of water
  • Steamer basket that comes with the Instant Pot


  • Scrub the sweet potatoes clean with a brush, like this one I love, until clean
  • Place steamer basket (the one that comes with the Instant Pot works great) in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  • Place the potatoes on top of the basket.
  • Secure the lid and turn valve the to seal.
  • Use the manual mode of the Instant Pot and use the + or - sin to set to cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  • Allow pressure to “release naturally” – takes about 10 minutes.
  • Once the little pressure valve lowers all the way down, remove lid and serve immediately.
  • Store in an air tight container.
