  • 6 cups spiralized sweet potatoes about 3 potatoes see instructions in blog post
  • Olive oil butter or ghee
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place spiralized sweet potatoes in a food processor and pulse for five seconds. If using a knife instead of processor, chop spiralized potatoes until they resemble large grains of rice
  2. Place a large pan on high heat, wait 60 seconds, then add enough olive oil to generously coat bottom of pan
  3. When oil is hot but not smoking add riced sweet potatoes
  4. Cook, stirring frequently for 8 minutes or so. Turn heat down if needed. "Rice" should be cooked but a little crispy so it has a 'bite'
  5. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper, serve!
