One of my favorite things to cook in my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker are Pressure Cooker Kale Mashed Potatoes.
Are You Crazy for Kale?
Do you flip for kale or just want to add more of it to your diet? Well, have I got a recipe for Pressure Cooker Kale Mashed Potatoes that you just might love!
Let me preface today’s recipe with “if I could’ve, I would’ve.”
If I could’ve, I would’ve loaded these potatoes with buttery, creamy goodness, much like Giada De Laurentiis does. But if my little guy was going to enjoy them, I’d have to make them free of the sinfully good stuff—butter and cheese.
I used my basic Mom’s Mashed Potatoes recipe and added to it sauteed and seasoned kale. This time, however, I used my pressure cooker—which I dearly love. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, just boil the potatoes and sauté the kale stove top.
My Beloved Pressure Cooker
This is the pressure cooker I use (affiliate link). I love that it is programmable, taking much of the guesswork out of pressure cooking. I bought this pressure cooker when my slow cooker died and I have not looked back. If I could describe what a pressure cooker does it would be “slow cooking FAST!”
The beauty of pressure cookers is that you can brown and sauté meat and veggies before securing the lid to do it’s thing. This greatly enhances the flavor of meat. And speaking of meat. It comes out so tender. So good. So fast. A five pound chicken cooks in just 22 minutes. Bone broth? Done in an hour.
Most pressure cookers come with a non-stick insert. That didn’t fly with me so I did some research and found that this stainless steel insert (affiliate link) fits the Cuisinart pressure cooker perfectly.
The only negative thing I’ve found with this model (and maybe it applies to all models) is that the scent of whatever you cooked last lingers in the silicon ring that seals the cooker tight. Does anyone else have this issue? Aside from that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker.
