Easy Instant Pot Garlic Herb Potatoes

I am officially OBSESSED with these Garlic Herb Potatoes! If you haven’t noticed by now, I am obsessed with potatoes! They’re so versatile, and super cost effective. Especially since we’re quarantined! I don’t know about you but my grocery shopping lately has been an absolute mess.

Probably because every time I go, I’m preparing for the end of the world! LOL It’s never just a regular trip to the store. In my quest to buy food that would last for an extended period of time, I decided that potatoes would make for a good buy.

Potatoes have a pretty good shelf life and can be used for a variety of different dishes. It’s been about 3 weeks or so since I bought this huge bag of redskin potatoes and these Garlic Herb Potatoes have been my favorite new creation!

How to Make Garlic and Herb Potatoes

You would not believe how easy it is to make these Garlic Herb Potatoes! This is probably one of the easiest side dishes I’ve ever made. If you’re ever in a pinch definitely add this to your list of emergency side-dishes! You’ll begin by dicing your redskin potatoes. My potatoes were a little large, so I ended up with diced pieces that were about 2 inches in size. This is helpful to know because if your potatoes are smaller, you’ll want to be sure to reduce your cooking time.

Once your potatoes are diced, you’ll simply transfer them to your instant pot along with your water or vegetable broth. If you don’t have vegetable broth, it’s not absolutely necessary. You can substitute with water. However, if you do have vegetable broth, you should definitely use it! Using broth will add a little extra flavor to your dish.

Like all instant pots, they’ll take some time to build up pressure. While this is happening, you can go ahead and melt your vegan butter and measure out your seasonings. That way, when your potatoes are done cooking, you’ll be ready for the next step!

Once the potatoes are ready, you’ll first want to drain any excess liquid. Next, grab a large mixing bowl to transfer the potatoes to. Now it’s time to season! Grab your melted vegan butter and drizzle it over the potatoes. Then grab your seasoning mixture and shake it over the potatoes a little at a time, gently stirring between shakes. Careful not to stir too hard, you don’t want to end up with mashed potatoes! Once the seasonings and vegan butter have been added, you’re ready to serve!

I know you’ll love these Garlic Herb Instant Pot Potatoes! They’re super easy to make and are simply delicious! My husband and I have been eating them for the past two weeks! Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!

  14. Do you release the pressure after 2 minutes or natural release? Also, if pressure cooking, you wouldn’t get the brown roasted look on the potato?

    • Hey Teresa, I usually do a manual release (I’m impatient lol). Some of the pieces might be browned a little on the bottom, but the water will keep them from appearing too roasted.

    This recipe was not only soo dang good it was quick and simple and all of the ingredients are commonly found in your kitchen! I will be back for more recipes (evil grin😏)

  16. I was really skeptical of this recipe but decided to give it a shot. The potatoes were so good even my toddler (who only eats potatoes in fries format) ate a big helping of them. Putting it in my favourites for sure!

    I liked the taste but mine were too mushy. I’m brand new to the instant pot cooking so I need some help on how to decrease cooking time. If I halved the time, would I let it natural release a little?

    I loved how simple, quick, and delicious these potatoes were! I should have done a quick release- I did a natural release for about 15 minutes, and the potatoes came out mushy. Mushy…but delicious nonetheless!
