Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes are a total meal prep game changer for your week! Perfect for baked sweet potatoes, mashed or for stuffing with protein for a complete meal.


  • 46 medium sweet potatoes, cleaned
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of your instant pot/pressure cooker. Then set the steamer rack into the pot.
  2. Place your cleaned sweet potatoes in a single layer onto the steamer rack (this is where your tetris skills really shine!).
  3. Secure the lid, turn the value to sealing and set to pressure cook or manual on high for 15 minutes.
  4. Once the cooking time has finished, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes. Then manually release any remaining pressure.
  5. Once the pressure valve lowers, serve immediately or cool and store in an air-tight container in the frig for 3-4 days.
  6. Enjoy and pat yourself on the back for your meal prepping success!
