Looking for a sweet and savory side to go alongside turkey, ham, roast beef, fish or just about anything else? My Instant Pot mashed sweet potatoes with honey, rosemary and chipotle will do the trick! Get ready for a big bowl of YUMMY.
I had two giant sweet potatoes in my produce drawer. I decided to throw them in the Instant Pot because that’s hands down the easiest way to cook sweet potatoes. The skin just slides right off and they are so tender and velvety.
But I wanted to do something special. I was feeling a little fancy. I was sitting in the backyard with the dogs drinking coffee and thinking about what I was going to cook when I spotted my rosemary bush. I always forget that thing exists! I pulled some sprigs off after deciding they’d be perfect with my sweet potatoes.
Instant Pot Mashed Sweet Potatoes
I put a cup of water in the bottom of my Instant Pot. I threw some sprigs of rosemary into the water. I put in a steamer basket and put my two sweet potatoes and some more rosemary in the basket.
I put the lid on and set it to 20 minutes on manual. I went back outside with the dogs, so I let it do a natural release.
I came back in to perfectly cooked sweet potatoes. The skin slips right off without even needed a knife or peeler.
I threw the potatoes in a bowl and mixed them up with butter, ground chipotle, salt, black pepper, honey, cream and some of the rosemary. The potatoes are so tender you can mash them with a fork!
These mashed sweet potatoes are GOOD! The perfect mix of creamy, sweet, savory and a little spicy.
