Instant Pot® Leek Mashed Potatoes


  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1leek, white parts only, quartered lengthwise and finely sliced
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • water to cover
  • ⅓ cup milk, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt to taste
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Combine potatoes, leek, and salt in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add water to cover, about 2 cups. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer’s instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow about 10 minutes for pressure to build.


  • Step 2

    Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer’s instructions, about 10 minutes. Carefully release remaining pressure using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Drain potatoes well and return them to the pot.

  • Step 3

    Select Saute function. Toss potatoes until dried and starting to sizzle, about 3 minutes. Add butter; stir until melted. Add milk. Mash potatoes with the back of a wooden spoon for a rustic mash, or run them through a ricer for a smoother mash. Taste and adjust the salt.

  • Cook's Notes:

    I don’t use a traditional potato masher in my Instant Pot(R) as I don’t want to scratch it.

    This can easily be doubled – the cooking time does not change.
