Sweet Potato Puree

A nice, subtle side dish – makes a great substitute for the regular white potato."


3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
1 cup water
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
pinch ground cinnamon
pinch ground nutmeg


Place cubed sweet potatoes and water into cooking pot of the Cuisinart Pressure Cooker. Lock lid in place. Select High Pressure. Set timer for 6 minutes. When audible beep sounds use Quick Release Method to release steam. When float valve drops, remove lid carefully, tilting away from you to allow steam to disperse.
Strain sweet potatoes and place in large mixing bowl. Mash with potato masher or hand mixer. Once thoroughly mashed, add remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Serve immediately.
