Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite foods. They are healthy and extremely versatile. And cooking them in the Instant Pot is my new favorite way to cook them! It’s quick, easy and they come out perfectly cooked every time!
BENEFITS OF SWEET POTATOES
Sweet Potatoes are considered a Superfood with several health benefits.
Rich in Antioxidants. Antioxidants can help protect your body from free radicals and may help fight off certain diseases such as cancer.
Rich in Fiber. Fiber helps promote a healthy digestive system and gut health.
Vitamin A. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A in your body. Vitamin A can help support a healthy eyesight/vision.
High in Potassium which helps keep blood pressure down and supports cardiovascular health.
May help manage stress levels. Sweet Potatoes have high amounts of magnesium which can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
MY INSTANT POT
I have the Instant Pot Duo Nova. I've had it for about a year and a half and I love it! It is a 7-in-1 appliance and I use the pressure cooker, saute function and rice cooker the most. It also has the Smart lid which is Instant Pot's newer easy to use seal lid that automatically seals your instant pot when you close the lid. My favorite things to cook in it are of course this dish, sweet potatoes or russet potatoes and rice. It really is a game change for me.
