If you love potatoes, but hate the time it takes, and the constant watching and “pricking” trying to determine when they are done, and then avoiding burns and steamed up glasses when draining them, this Instant Pot Small Potatoes recipe is for you. Your potatoes will cook up tender, moist and fluffy every time, in an amazingly short time!
Even though people usually don’t think of potatoes as a “health food”, baby potatoes are very nutritious! One serving of these potatoes provides almost 45 percent of the RDA for vitamin C, and 10 percent of the RDA for vitamin B6, a vitamin required for neurotransmitter synthesis and cardiovascular system health. New or baby potatoes are also high in niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K, and high concentrations of potassium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium. So here’s another reason for you to make these Instant Pot small potatoes ASAP :)
Another awesome thing about small potatoes is that you don’t need to peel them! All you need to do is give them a quick rinse, put in your Instant Pot and add water. Then, just sit back and relax as those potatoes steam to perfection! Toss with some butter and herbs like dill or parsley or chives, and serve!
Like what’s on my plate on the picture above? The main dish that’s served alongside the new potatoes is Instant Pot Italian Sausages – yet another Instant Pot win! And the salad is raw zucchini and tomato salad – so healthy and yummy!
