  • 3 large Potatoes with skin
  • 8 large Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Milk (more if needed)
  • 2 teaspoons Sea Salt or to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter or to taste


  • Chop potatoes and carrots, making sure that the carrots are in smaller pieces than the potatoes.
  • Add one cup of water to the Pressure Cooker cooking pot and place a trivet on top.
  • Add the potatoes and carrots to the trivet.
  • Lock on lid and close Pressure Valve.  Cook at High Pressure for 8 minutes.
  • Allow a 5 minute Natural Pressure Release and then do a Quick Release to remove the rest of the pressure.
  • Add potatoes and carrots to a bowl and mash with a fork.
  • Add the milk and continue to mash. Add the salt and mash until completely combined.  Add butter and mix in well.
  • Dot with butter if desired.


If you want a creamier, more whipped mash, add a little more milk.
