Sweet Potatoes cooked in Instant Pot on a plate with asparagus

Simple Directions

Using the instant pot to cook sweet potatoes has been a game changer for me!  They always turn out soft and delicious.  Such an easy and healthy side dish.  Wash the sweet potatoes and put them in the instant pot on a rack with about an inch of water in the bottom.  Set for manual 25 minutes and get ready for pure goodness.  Enjoy!

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 30 minutes


  • 4 fresh medium sized Sweet Potatoes
  • Butter (Optional)
  • Cinnamon (Optional)



Wash sweet potatoes by rubbing under cool running water in the sink. I like to scrub them lightly with a vegetable brush.


Place rack in bottom of the instant pot. I use the one that came with mine that has handles to lift the rack out with.


Cover bottom of pan with water until just over the rack - about an inch of water.


Place sweet potatoes in pot on top of rack.


Put instant pot cover (with sealing ring in place) on top and twist to lock.


Place vent on top in sealed position.


Set instant pot to manual for 25 minutes.


After the timer beeps that the cooking is finished you can let the pressure naturally release or do a quick release. I have had good results with both methods.


Remove the top and lift sweet potatoes out with tongs or a slotted spoon. They should be extremely soft and yummy.


Serve with butter and/or cinnamon if you like. I think they are delicious plain since they are so sweet and soft. Enjoy!
