Mashed Potatoes In Ninja Foodi

My son calls it ma ma mash. Well, he did when he was four and he is now 19, and I always jokingly ask him if he wants some ma ma mash.

Mashed potatoes join lasagne as his favourite foods of all time.

He could eat mashed potatoes every day given the opportunity and just makes me promise that I never make them like his grandma made them.

She once made the error of making him smash and he was heartbroken that his favourite food was replaced with something out of a box.

He was 11 at the time, but he hasn’t forgotten.

After promising Kyle that no box of mash would ever be used, something I have never ever done, I pointed out that mashed potatoes in the Ninja Foodi are so SIMPLE that you don’t need to use a box version.

In fact, even if you are a stovetop person when it comes to mashed potatoes, this recipe will be a serious life changer.

Can You Cook Mashed Potatoes In The Ninja Foodi?

Yes, you can. Mashed potatoes in the Ninja Foodi are truly amazing!

Ninja Foodi mashed potatoes ticks so many boxes:

  • Less washing up – You are cooking the mashed potatoes in the same ninja pot that you are mixing them in.
  • No draining – We use just enough liquid to take the Ninja pressure cooker to pressure. This means that you don’t need to drain after cooking.
  • Easy to make – Forget the box when you can dump it in the Ninja and then quickly mash it when your Ninja Foodi beeps.
  • Stack – You can add a trivet and then cook something else above the mash at the same time. Such as meatloaf, chicken breasts etc.

How Do You Cook Mashed Potatoes In A Pressure Cooker?

The method for cooking mashed potatoes in a pressure cooker is very simple and it’s the same regardless of using the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot, Pressure King Pro, or whichever brand you own.

Potatoes are loaded into the cooking pot and then seasoned and have liquid added.

They then pressure cooked and you then mash them like you would with stovetop boiled potatoes.

How Long To Cook Potatoes In Ninja Foodi?

For Ninja Foodi mashed potatoes I love to pressure cook for 15 minutes. This is because I am pressure cooking 2 kilos (4.4 pounds) of potatoes and there is a lot in the pot.

Plus, I want the potatoes to be super soft so that when I transform them into mashed potatoes that it is not an effort.

Can You Mash Potatoes In A Ninja Blender?

If you want to save time, you can also load your mashed potatoes into the Ninja Blender and let the blender do the mashing.

Or you can cook your potatoes in your Ninja Blender if you prefer. But the problem I have with that, is that I can’t cook 2 kilos of mashed potatoes at once!

Easy. Because I have cooked the potatoes for 15 minutes, they hardly require any mashing. Its just a quick mash and it is done.
Ratio. Note that I have used 600ml of liquid for 2 kilos of potatoes. This ensures that you have some liquid left over at the end to make your potatoes creamy, but not too much that requires a draining.
Stock. Mashed potatoes taste much better in the pressure cooker if you use stock rather than plain water. If you don’t have any stock use water that you have flavoured with lots of seasonings such as thyme, sage, rosemary etc,

    Mash loaded with butter and cheese does not get better than that, i am a cheese lover and this was a great base for me to use.
