Another video for your viewing pleasure! Figured it was time to share how I have been making bulk sweet potatoes for meal prep literally every week these days. The best part is that it is super FAST and super EASY to do, which is why this one has been my go-to. The video really says it all, so I'll just add my notes and commentary. I typically buy larger sweet potatoes and stuff my Instant Pot to the max, so I always cook on manual for 30 minutes. However, like I noted below, if your sweet potatoes are smaller in size then 25 minutes should be plenty enough. The skins on the sweet potatoes naturally break open when cooked through, and once cooled I'll either put them into meals or store in one big container to have with dinners for the week. If you are someone who needs to mix up how they eat sweet potatoes then don't go anywhere yet! This is just like a plain chicken bulk prep where once you have it made you can dress it up as you want throughout the week. You can make this cooked sweet potato into a mash by adding some spices, cooking fat, and coconut or almond milk. If you want to step the mash game up even more you can steam some cauliflower, butternut squash, carrots, or pumpkin and blend that into the mash as well. I've added cooked sweet potato to smoothies and gluten-free oatmeal, made sweet potato pancakes, mashed them with bananas to make a fun snack, and my favorite is making a sweet potato bowl -- add an egg or two on top, some nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut shavings, spinach, chicken or other protein... the possibilities are really endless! Although these aren't true baked sweet potatoes, I do think they come pretty close to the real thing. Plus, you don't have to spend and hour or two waiting and checking on them in the oven until they are done. With no prep involved, just pop these in your Instant Pot first thing in the morning or when you get home, and continue on with your life.

*If your sweet potatoes are larger in diameter cook for at least 30 minutes. If they are smaller in diameter then 25 minutes should be plenty enough!
