Easy Instant Pot Baby Potatoes – if you’re a fellow potato lover, this recipe is perfect for you! The potatoes saute for 5 minutes, cook for 7 minutes in the Instant Pot and then it’s finished! The perfect side or bowl base is ready to be topped and consumed!
I know many of you received an Instant Pot for Christmas because they were backordered on Amazon. If you still need one, I use this one. I’m still slightly afraid of cooking meat in the instant pot still… BUT today is the day. I’m going to make chicken breasts in the instant pot tonight. I’d like to make an entire series of Whole 30, Paleo approved meals that you can just throw into the Instant Pot when you come home from work! Definitely stay tuned for that!
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil [EVOO]
- 1.5 lbs baby potatoes [24 oz]
- 1 tbsp italian seasoning
- 1/3 cup water
Turn on the IP Saute function (after you hit saute, you’ll see ‘on’, this means it’s heating up). Add EVOO into Instant Pot
When the display reads ‘hot’ (Instant Pot fully heated), add potatoes and set a timer for 5 minutes occasionally stirring the potatoes [Note: I’ve made this recipe without actually stirring at all and it turns out fine though stirring is best practice.]
When the timer is done, cancel Saute. Add water and italian seasoning
Place lid on Instant Pot, make sure it’s properly sealed and add 7 minutes on the manual setting
When it’s complete, wait for the Instant Pot to completely depressurize naturally (approximately 15-20 minutes). Open, fluff and serve!
