By now I’m sure you’ve caught wind of the electric pressure cooker craze that seems to be sweeping the nation from kitchen to kitchen. I’ve been wanting to jump on the electric pressure cooker train, so when the opportunity came along to partner with GoWise and use their new Electric Pressure Cooker, I was super excited! Coming up with a dish to make was tough! The options are endless! I was in the mood for something savory, so I decided to go with this amazingly delicious Sweet Potato + Spinach Thai Curry.

If by chance you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so (it’s okay, happens to me too) and you’re wondering what all of the hype is about, it’s simple. Electric pressure cookers cook everything SUPER fast. Like, lightning speed. It’s crazy! I won’t lie, my first round of cooking with the pressure cooker didn’t go so well. Unfortunately I underestimated just how fast it cooked. However, I quickly learned after my fresh cauliflower turned into crumbles after 20 minutes of being cooked on high (yikes). Take my word for it. Do your research first!

The Process:

Making this Sweet Potato + Spinach Thai Curry was the perfect way to introduce myself to the beauty of owning an electric pressure cooker. I used the saute setting to lightly brown the sweet potato chunks. Then I added a little water to the pot and used the manual setting to cook the sweet potatoes. After two minutes, the potatoes were done and I could easily cut them with a fork. SO tender! If you’ve ever cooked potatoes of any kind, you know they’re NEVER ready in two minutes! But with an electric pressure cooker, it’s totally possible.

Next, I needed to make the curry. I set aside the cooked potatoes and then used the saute setting again to cook the garlic, onions, and peppers. After they became fragrant, I tossed in the remaining ingredients and the curry was done! All that was left to do was to add in the veggies, plate, and serve. You can enjoy this dish with rice, or alone. It’s completely up to you!

  1. Hey Desirée,

    I stumbled across your blog via link to the southern fried jackfruit. You are my new friend! ; D One of the few things I still get a hankering for once in a blue moon. I hope to make it soon as I can make a trip to the Asian store to get more jackfruit. Keep up the deliciousness.
