  • 2 min read
  • Instant Pot

There are many variations to the classic mashed potatoes. Depending on the main dish, the humble mashed potato can complement a more flavourful main dish with just butter and salt, or boost the flavour of a lesser dish with some rosemary and garlic, or even some cheese. Even the type of potato can make a big difference to the flavour.

The possibilities are endless!

  • 3 lb Russet potatoes peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 4-5 large garlic cloves peeled and smashed
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves finely minced (or 1 t. dried)
  • ½ cup chicken or vegetable broth preferably organic
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter cut into chunks


  • Combine the potatoes, garlic, rosemary leaves, and broth in an Instant Pot®. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Add the lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 8 minutes.
  • When the cook time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.
  • Carefully remove the lid and add the heavy cream. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or immersion blender until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky. Taste and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and top with butter and serve immediately. Enjoy!
