Instant Pot Ube (Purple) Yam

Ube (Purple) Yam has a beautiful vibrant color, pleasingly sweet aroma and a bit unusually wonderful texture when compared to the common sweet potato. This eye catching healthy little side or snack is effortless when prepared using the Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker. My middle child, who turns his nose up at the traditional yam, loves this and says it is better than a regular sweet potato. Whatever his logic may be, I am just glad I can get him to easily eat a healthy item. In fact I have to make extra now because he goes after the ones I prep cook for myself for the coming weeks snacks. I suggest finding these at the local Asian grocery store and adding this wonderful color to your table. Check out the video and instructions, give it a try and let me know if you liked it. Happy Fall Y’all!
