Wash your large sweet potatoes and cut them in half as shown in the photo in the post. Leave the peels on. Pierce each sweet potato half about 3 times and place in the Instant Pot or CrockPot Express with a steamer rack in the bottom.
Add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker. The steamer rack will keep the potatoes from sitting in the water.
Close the lid on the pressure cooker, close the steam valve, and cook on Manual (for CrockPot Express) or Steam (for Instant Pot) on high for 15 minutes.
Once it's done cooking, turn off the keep warm feature and allow natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then quick release the rest of the pressure.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking in the Instant Pot, prepare the streusel.
In a medium bowl, stir together with a fork the brown sugar, sorghum or brown rice flour, cinnamon, and salt.
Cut the softened dairy free butter into the brown sugar mixture until it's mixed well and crumbly. Set aside.
Putting it all together:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the bottom of an 8x8 inch pan or a 9x13 pan (both will work fine in this recipe).
Remove the sweet potatoes from the Instant Pot while they're still hot and remove and discard the peel/skin. Use hot pads or these will burn your hands.
Add the brown sugar, dairy free butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt and mash together until mixed well. Spread into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Spread half the streusel topping on the sweet potatoes and set aside the other half.
Bake the sweet potato casserole uncovered for 30 minutes.
Spread on the other half of the streusel topping and bake again for 10 more minutes.
Allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving warm with your meal. Enjoy!
