Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes are the perfect healthy side dish for any meal!

Spring is here and Easter is less than a week away. The temperatures are heating up to a glorious 50 degrees (yes that is is warm where we live, don’t judge) and I am in full spring cleaning mode. I’ve been going through the basement, our upstairs and even the kitchen grabbing crap that I haven’t used in forever and throwing it into boxes for the local thrift shop. The kids even got in on the action over spring break and we hauled out at least 8 boxes of stuff. It feels great to get this stuff out of the house and I have plans to purge more over the next few weeks. You don’t realize how much stuff you accumulate over the years!

While purging I went through all my kitchen cupboards making note of what I use and what needed to go. I got an Instant Pot several months ago and used it several times and then it got tucked away in the cupboard. I decided to pull it out again and try some new recipes. First up was sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes. They are SO good for you and so easy to make and the Instant Pot just brings cooking to another level of easy.

With Easter in a few days, these would be a great side dish. They are full of flavor and healthy. I love to make 5-6 at a time and then store them in the fridge. I pull them out for lunch or dinner sides and simply reheat. Even my kids enjoy them!
