1.Preheat the oven to 200c. and line a roasting tray with greaseproof paper or spray with olive oil. 2.Peel and chop the sweet potato into thin slices, dust with the smoked paprika and roast for approximately 30 minutes, until tender. Keep the oven on. 3.Meanwhile, add the beans, arrowroot powder, onion, garlic, herbs and spices to a large bowl. When the sweet potato is cooked, add it to the bowl and mash everything together. Add salt and pepper to taste. 4.Divide the mixture into 4 balls and flatten into patty shapes.
