I used to make mashed potatoes the old-fashioned way, but you have to wait for the water to boil and then it takes 15-20 minutes to cook them. With this pressure cooker mashed potatoes recipe, you put the potatoes in the pressure cooker to cook, and within 5 minutes they’re ready — in just 1/3 of the time.
Don’t fret about using real cream and butter. Cream and butter are loaded with vitamin A and vitamin K2, nutrients your body needs for heart health, brain health, healthy bones and teeth, and immunity.
Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes: Recipe Notes
Use russet or Yukon Gold potatoes instead of other varieties. They have the right amount of starch for fluffy mashed potatoes.
Also I highly recommend that you try to get organic potatoes. There is a lot of pesticide residue on potatoes, and fluoride if fluoride-based pesticides are used.
I also don’t recommend just any pressure cooker. I only recommend the Instant Pot because it has a stainless steel bowl instead of Teflon.
Finally, do not overmash your potatoes or you will end up with gluey mashed potatoes.
