Mashed Potatoes Adapted for the InstantPot

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 8 minutes at high pressure


We use Russet potatoes, but any potato works well. Serve with Creamy Golden Gravy. Delicious and fast!


  • 4-6 medium to large potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1-inch pieces
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, whole
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk, optional
  • salt and pepper, optional


Put everything into the InstantPot and push [Manual], then the [-] button until it reaches 8 minutes. Make sure the steam release valve is on "Steam". Once the 8 minutes are up, let the potatoes sit for 5 minutes, then move the steam release valve to "Vent" until the pressure releases. Once the pressure is released you can open the pot. It will not let you open the top until the pressure is released and it is safe to do so.

Mash potatoes with a masher, add non-dairy milk, if using, and seasonings to taste.
