I don’t want to take hours boiling water and potatoes stove top or bake them in the oven for hours.  Its such a hassle, right?

So, I made them in one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. Ever since I made my Cuban picadillo, I am obsessed with this pressure cooker.  It cooks everything to perfection with minimum effort, like this red lentil soup

Pressure cooker mashed potatoes take only a few minutes to cook the potatoes.  Idaho and red potatoes take only 5 minutes to cook if you remove the skin and roughly dice them.

The sweet potato cooks better if you cook it whole and then mash it.  Cutting sweet potatoes before cooking them made them too mushy.  I think its a personal preference, but, I like my sweet potatoes to have a less mushy consistency

These 3 pressure cooker vegan mashed potatoes are going to make everyone drool!

Personally, I like my mashed potatoes to have a few lumps.  If you like your mashed potatoes smooth, I might judge be silently judging you!

Have you had olives in mashed potatoes?  I tried it a few years and completely fell in love with it.  I have tried green olives, pearl olives and now, (affiliate link) Kalamata olives.  For me, its a tie between Kalamata and green olives.  They both taste so good!

I also added deli style roasted red peppers to the mashed potatoes because they added amazing flavors to it.  Together with spices, it makes these mashed potatoes so delicious.

I like the simplicity of these mashed potatoes.  Garlic will work great in this recipe, but, I didn’t add any.  I think I like the taste of olives without the garlic.  If you love garlic and olives, go ahead and add it to the recipe.

Sweet potatoes are a staple on my blog and my life.  I love the healthy component of the sweet potatoes, but, more than that, I love how delicious it tastes in any recipe.  I have made curry, spring rolls, sweet potato wedges and Cheesy hash browns, just to name a few.

This time, I am glad to be making mashed sweet potatoes with them.  Cooking them in the pressure cooker takes all the hard work out of it.

I tried making mashed potatoes with chopped sweet potatoes, but, they turned out a little to mushy for my taste.  When I left them whole, the texture in the end was much better.
