These AIP Mashed Potatoes are a holiday classic made AIP-friendly and easy with Japanese sweet potatoes and a no-drain Instant Pot method.

On my list of must-haves for Thanksgiving and Christmas, mashed potatoes and gravy are right there at the top with the turkey. You just can’t have a big holiday meal without the mashed potatoes.

But because potatoes are a nightshade, and nightshades can cause problems for those of us with autoimmune diseases, mashed potatoes are a no-go on AIP. So what’s an AIPer to do? Make AIP mashed potatoes with white sweet potatoes, of course!

This AIP Mashed Potatoes recipe utilizes white sweet potatoes (rather than their orange counterparts) for two reasons. First, white sweet potatoes are less sweet than the orange version, helping to contribute toward a more savory dish. The addition of a variety of savory spices also help make this dish more savory than sweet. And second, white sweet potatoes look much more like your standard mashed potatoes than the orange ones, helping to trick your brain into thinking it’s getting the Thanksgiving classic.

One of my favorite features of this AIP Mashed Potatoes recipe is that it’s made in an Instant Pot. Not only does this make it super easy to make, it also frees up the oven and stovetop for other holiday dishes. Plus, this recipe gets bonus points because there is no draining required! The ratio of potatoes to liquid is perfect for a quick cook + mash, without having to drain the potatoes in between. Brilliant!

How to make Instant Pot AIP Mashed Potatoes

Equipment

Because this is an Instant Pot recipe, you will need and Instant Pot. Another type of electric pressure cooker should work just fine, as well. You will also need your standard kitchen equipment, such as a chef’s knife and cutting board, as well as measuring spoons and a liquid measuring cup. It also helps to have a potato masher or electric hand mixer to “mash” the potatoes.

Ingredients

You’ll need just 9 ingredients for this AIP Mashed Potatoes recipe, most of which you probably already have on-hand.

Directions

First, peel and chop your white sweet potatoes and add them to your Instant Pot. Sprinkle nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley and sea salt on top. Top with a dried bay leaf and pour the broth over everything. Cover, seal and set to high pressure for 10 minutes.

When the cooking cycle is complete, quick release the pressure. To prevent burns, cover the valve with a thick towel before releasing the pressure. Open the lid and remove the bay leaf.

Add the coconut milk to the potatoes and use an electric hand mixer or potato masher to mash or whip the potatoes, right in the Instant Pot. Add extra coconut milk, if desired, for a creamier texture. Serve your AIP Mashed Potatoes with AIP gravy and enjoy!

Notes

White sweet potatoes tend to turn brown super quickly, so work fast. Mine started to brown within seconds of cutting into them. Don’t worry too much about it, though. It doesn’t affect the taste at all.
