Cooking Time: 1hr 15mins

Total Time: 2hrs 15min

Difficulty: Level 3

Ingredients:

350g Dried Beans (soaked overnight) - We use Kidney Beans/Black Beans/Black Eye Beans

500g Sweet Potato

150g Oats (Can use certified GF if necessary)

1 Onion - chopped

3 Cloves of Garlic - minced

200g Mushrooms - diced

1 Fresh Chilli Pepper

2 tsp Smoked Paprika

1 tsp Ground Coriander

Handful of Walnuts

Frying Oil of choice - we use Rapeseed oil

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees

2. Drain soaking beans and pop into a pot - cover with fresh water and boil for close to an hour (until beans are soft)

3. Meanwhile wash and half your sweet potato, sprinkle with salt and pepper - place on a baking tray and roast for 45 - 50mins

4. When the sweet potatoes and beans are almost ready heat a pan on medium and add 1 tsp of oil - add onions and fry for 2mins, add mushrooms - fry for a further 2 minutes then add garlic, chilli and spices. Fry until mushrooms have shrunk in size and the onions are translucent - set aside to cool slightly

5. Drain beans and take your sweet potatoes from the oven

6. Pop beans, oats, and walnuts into a food processor and blitz

7. Scoop the inside of the sweet potato out* into a bowl and add the onion mix and the bean mix and combine 

8. Place mixture in the fridge for 30mins

9. Preheat oven again (if required), line an oven proof dish with baking paper (if required) and heat a pan on medium with 2 tbsp of oil

10. Take the bean burger mixture from the fridge and shape into a patties (size is your choice) - gently fry in the pan - 2 mins on each size then pop on the baking tray

11. Put the burgers in the oven for 20minutes - in this time you can either prepare a quick salad to have alongside it or prep your burger topping.

Serve and enjoy!
