It cooked the Idaho potatoes in 5 minutes and I was ready to serve it immediately.  This was the first time I used a pressure cooker to make the them.  In the past, I have slaved over a boiling pot of water and I still never got the consistency just right

With the pressure cooker, it cooks the potatoes evenly and quickly.  So, I had the perfectly cooked potatoes in less than 5 minutes.

Talk about quick and easy Thanksgiving sides, right?

I also used melted butter, homemade hazelnut milk and whole peppercorns for this recipe.  I wanted to make them as close to your Grandmother’s recipe as I could.

The mashed potatoes are topped with my homemade vegan gravy.  You are going to love this gravy because I used coconut flour and coconut milk to make it.  Its super easy, creamy and smooth!

My Bestek pressure cooker has the nutritious cooking option which was perfect for these mashed potatoes.  It cooked them delicately and precisely within 5 minutes.
