Sweet Potato Tater Tot Ingredients

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (makes 2 dozen tots)

  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Begin by boiling a large pot of water. Add the whole potatoes to the water with skins on. Boil for 20 minutes. Remove from the water and allow to cool.

Once cool enough to handle, shred the potatoes using a box grater.

*As you begin shredding the potatoes the skins will peel off. Snack on them while you prepare the tots or simply discard them.

Grated Sweet Potatoes

Add the grated sweet potatoes to a large bowl with the flour and salt. Combine well.
