1 tin black beans
250g cooked brown rice (use a pack of pre-cooked rice as a shortcut)
half onion finely chopped
1 tbsp flour (any kind, I use brown rice flour)
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
half tsp salt
Fresh chopped herbs like Coriander/Parsley (optional)
Fresh chopped Chilli (optional, if you like it spicy)
In a food processor add the rice, onion, flour and spices and blitz until fairly smooth.
Add optional herbs and drained black beans, pulse gently - you just want the beans to break up a bit, but still keep a bit of texture. Mould into 4 burger shapes (make into a ball then flatten) Place on a roasting tray lined with baking paper and cook in 180ºc for about 35 minutes until firm and a bit crisp on the edges. Can be frozen after cooking - freeze flat.
Sweet Potato Wedges:
Sweet Potatoes, washed and quartered (no need to peel), mix in a bowl with 1 or 2 tbsp olive oil, black pepper, 1 or 2 tsp smoked paprika, 1 or 2 tsp dried oregano. Roast on a tray in the oven 200ºc for between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending how crispy you like them. Turn them over with a spatula half way through. Salt before serving and scatter with fresh herbs (parsley, coriander etc) if you want them to look fancy!
