Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are easy to make and are perfect as a side dish with any protein, like chicken, beef, fish or tofu.

You can add crispy onion on top for extra flavor.

If you want to make it yellower, just add 1 tsp of turmeric in the first step (I didn’t use it for the images on this recipe).

If you want to make it orange, try this carrot mash recipe.
