Description

The easiest way to make sweet potatoes!


Ingredients

  • 5 large sweet potatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut butter

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into approximately 1-inch chunks. Add the chunks to the bowl of a pressure cooker.
  2. Add the salt, thyme, and cinnamon to the sweet potatoes and toss to combine.
  3. Pour in the water and lock the lid on the pressure cooker.
  4. Cook the sweet potatoes on high pressure for 8 minutes and quick-release the pressure.
  5. Add the maple syrup and ghee or coconut butter to the potatoes and use a spatula to mix together. Mash the potatoes using the spatula and serve immediately.
  6. Refrigerate any leftovers and re-heat on the stovetop with about ¼ cup of almond milk to add extra creaminess.

Notes

You’ll need to add allow for an extra 10 minutes cooking time for the pressure cooker to come up to pressure.
