  • 4 green onions, diced
  • 3 sweet potatoes, turned to rice in the food processor
  • 1.5 lbs ground pork
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Chop sweet potatoes into small chunks and add them to a food processor using the chop blade. Pulse in the processor until the sweet potatoes are broken down into small, rice-like pieces. (You may have to do this in 2 batches, only fill the food processor halfway full to allow it to process. Don't over process, as potatoes will turn to mush).

  2. In a large pan over medium-high heat, add pork to brown. Season with salt and pepper. Break up into small bits and cook until it has developed a brown crust, about 8 minutes. Drain fat if desired, reserving at least 1 tbsp in the pan.
  3. While the pork is cooking, cut up green onions. 

  4. Add sweet potato rice to pan. Add the green onions, coconut aminos, fish sauce and cayenne. Mix well. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sweet potatoes start to soften.

  5. Crack the eggs into the pan and stir them around to scramble. Continue to stir until the eggs are fully cooked, 2-3 minutes.
  6. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as desired. 

  7. Remove from heat and serve.
