  • Place a cup of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add your steamer basket and add the potatoes first and then sprinkle over the top ½ the garlic along with salt and pepper. Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook on steam for 20 minutes.
  • While it is steaming cut your tomatoes into small chunks and mix with the remaining garlic and extra salt and pepper.
  • When the Instant Pot has finished use manual release to remove the pressure quickly.
  • Remove the steamer and the water from the bottom and put the potatoes to one side.
  • Place the tomatoes, onion, remaining seasoning and olive oil into the bottom of the Instant Pot and sauté for 10 minutes or until the tomatoes are like mush.
  • When they turn to mush use a hand blender to blender the majority of the tomatoes until they are 60% smooth.
  • Return the potatoes to the pot, have a good stir and serve with fresh herbs.


Think portion control – ½ large potato per person is a good size when you have meat to go with it. Or 1 large potato each if you are just eating this for your main meal.
For a creamier texture stir in ¼ of a can of coconut milk a couple of minutes before serving.
