A delicious blend of Free beans and vegetables, flavoured with smoked paprika.


  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 120g canned baked beans in tomato sauce
  • ½ x 400g can mixed beans or pulses in water, drained
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • ½ tbsp barbecue seasoning
  • 2 bottled roasted red peppers in brine, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/ gas 6 and line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Steam the sweet potato for 10 minutes or until tender (use a steamer or put the chunks in a covered colander placed over a saucepan of boiling water and steam over a high heat). Tip the chunks into a large bowl, add the baked beans and mash roughly. Add the remaining ingredients and season to taste.
  3. Divide the mixture into four equal portions and shape each one into a burger (the mixture will be quite wet). Arrange the burgers on the baking tray and bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden.
  4. Use a fish slice to carefully lift them off the tray (they will be quite delicate) and serve hot with a salad.
