Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the sweet potato into fries. Place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and toss to coat. Bake until tender, 20-25 minutes. TIP: If your tray is getting crowded, divide the fries between two trays.


While the fries are baking, drain and rinse the red kidney beans. Grate the carrot.


In a medium bowl, lightly mash the beans. Add the carrot, plain flour, garlic paste, plant-based shredded Cheddar cheese, a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) and mild Caribbean jerk seasoning. Mix well. Using damp hands, roll the mixture into small balls, then flatten into 1cm-thick patties. Transfer to a plate. You should get 3-4 patties per person. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.

TIP: Chilling the mixture helps the patties firm up!


While the patties are in the fridge, thinly slice the apple. Roughly chop the cucumber. In a second medium bowl, combine a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the mixed salad leaves, apple and cucumber. Set aside.

TIP: Toss the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.


In a large frying pan, add enough olive oil to coat the base and heat over a medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the patties, in batches, until golden, 2-4 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

TIP: Add extra oil between batches if needed to prevent the patties from sticking to the pan!


Toss the salad. Divide the Caribbean-spiced bean patties, sweet potato fries and salad between plates. Serve with the plant-based smokey aioli.
