Servings 6


  • 8 medium sized Yukon Gold potatoes cleaned
  • ½ cup water to cook the potatoes with in instant pressure cooker
  • tsp minced garlic
  • 2-3 tsp olive oil or vegan butter to saute garlic (could also sub for water)
  • ½ cup vegan sour cream (I used Good Karma's brand)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 5 tbsp vegan butter
  • chives or green onions for garnish optional


  • Place the potatoes in your instant pot along with ½ cup of water. Cook the potatoes on high for 22 minutes. Release pressure manually (or naturally if desired).
  • Drain any excess water from the pot and transfer the potatoes to an appropriately sized bowl.
  • Use the instant pot's saute setting to saute the minced garlic along with water, oil or additional butter until lightly browned.
  • Option 1: Transfer the potatoes, minced garlic and all other ingredients to a large mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to combine (I used this option in fear of the hand mixer scratching the instant pot's lining).
    Option 2: Add the potatoes and all other ingredients to the instant pot and use a hand mixer to combine.
    Option 3: Use a potato masher to mash potatoes and stir with a spoon.
  • Mix until texture is smooth.
  • Plate and garnish with chopped chives or green onions. Enjoy!
