Can I use nor in this example:

I haven’t eaten rice nor potatoes.
I looked up that nor is usually followed by neither on this site: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/when-use-nor
However, I would like to know if the way I used it in the example is correct to use.

Answer

You have not ... nor – so no, it is incorrect.

I have eaten neither rice nor potatoes.

is the correct usage

If you insist on using not, you need two sentences:

I haven’t eaten rice, nor have I eaten potatoes.
