1 .  Peel the sweet potato and steam it until almost cooked through, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool to handle. Once cool, shred potato using a box grater. Mix the grated potato with the salt, pepper and paprika. Form into tablespoon-size nuggets.

2 . Place the AirFryer Basket onto the Baking/Drip Pan and spray well with nonstick cooking spray. Place the sweet potato tots evenly on the basket. Lightly coat with olive oil.

3 . AirFry in the upper position with the temperature set to 400°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Tots are done when the edges are golden. Flip halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.
