- 1/4 tablespoon, 3 packets, or to taste Sweetly Stevia

For the Tots:
- Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add both sweet potatoes whole and cook for about 15 minutes.

- Combine the potato and eggs in a medium-sized bowl using a fork.
- Combine flour, salt, paprika, and garlic powder in a separate small bowl.
- Stir the flour mixture into the potato mixture until well-combined.
- Follow the instructions on your deep fryer to prepare the oil. If you want a healthier version, feel free to use your deep fryer!
- Prepare a plate with paper towels to soak up extra grease when removing the tots from the fryer.
- Form the potato mixture into 1-inch balls(an oiled ice cream scooper works great for this!)
- Add potato balls to the fryer, careful to not overcrowded. Keep in mind that it'll take multiple batches to cook them all.
For the Ketchup:
- Heat the oil over medium heat and add the onions. Cook until soft and lightly browned.
- Add the garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and allspice. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring often.
- Stir in the tomato paste until the color changes from bright red to a burnt orange color.
- Add the can of tomatoes, don't drain, add 1/4 tablespoon of stevia, the cider vinegar, a pinch of salt, and some black pepper. Stir until combined, take a taste test. If you like sweeter ketchup, try adding a little more stevia until it's just right!
- Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce the heat and simmer on low for about 20 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened.
- Blend until smooth. Let the ketchup cool at room temperature and then store in the fridge until ready to use!
