  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1.5 lbs red baby potatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter


  • Add the 3/4 cup of water to the bottom of Instant Pot and then place trivet inside the inner pot.
  • Add baby potatoes. Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to low, then cook for 2 minutes. The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping. Meanwhile mix the spices together.
  • Press the Cancel button then do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Carefully remove baby potatoes from Instant Pot and drain water, then add back to pot. Add in butter and gently toss until melted and potatoes are covered. Add in spices and toss until well seasoned.
  • Serve and enjoy!
