To substitute fresh thyme for dried thyme in this spicy pressure-cooker
recipe, use 1/2 tablespoon of the fresh herb.
2 cups water
6 cups cubed sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons vegan margarine, such as Earth Balance
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried chipotle pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and
pepper, to taste
1. Pour water into the pressure cooker and add potatoes. Lock the lid into
place and bring to high pressure. Once achieved, turn the heat to low and
cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and release pressure naturally.
2. Drain the potatoes into a colander. Add the margarine to the pressure
cooker and sauté the garlic for about 2 minutes. Remove the pressure
cooker from the heat. Add the sweet potatoes, chipotle pepper, and
thyme. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or electric mixer.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
