Instant Pot Parsley Potatoes
We love potato side dishes and these buttered parsley potatoes are the perfect compliment to any meat dish you are serving. Yellow potatoes are tender and buttery flavored on their own, adding butter to the recipe just kicks the flavors up a notch.
Potatoes are simple to prepare in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and take very little time. The perfect dish for a busy day.
Let’s Gather a Few Simple Ingredients for Parsley Potatoes
- Honey Gold Baby Potatoes – you can use any gold or yellow baby potato as well
- Butter – we like to use salted butter with potatoes
- Garlic Powder
- Chicken Broth
- Fresh Parsley
- Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
Great Family Potato Side Dish
- 1 1/2 lbs. Honey Gold baby potatoes, cut in half
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese - to serve
- salt and black pepper, to taste
Add the potatoes to the Instant Pot® and sprinkle with the garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
Pour water or broth into the unit and cover. Lock the lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Select the “Manual” setting on high and adjust the cook time to 2 minutes.
When the cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. Then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Once the pin drops and no more steam is coming out, carefully remove the lid and set aside.
Turn the unit off and drain the potatoes completely. Return the potatoes to unit and add melted butter and parsley. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired, and toss to combine.
To serve, transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl and top with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
The potatoes used for this recipe are Honey Gold baby potatoes. If you can’t find them in your local grocery store, you can substitute other varieties, such as red or finger potatoes. If using larger potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces rather than in half.
How Long Can I Store Baby Potatoes
When stored at cooler temperatures, whole uncooked baby potatoes can last a couple of months.
How Long Do Leftover Potatoes Last?
Leftover cooked potatoes will typically last about 3-4 days if kept in the fridge.
Are Potatoes Healthy?
Potatoes have lots of fiber, potassium and vitamin C and vitamin B6. Potatoes do make a healthy choice for lunch or dinner when the potatoes are not prepared with a lot of fats or salt.
