400g can borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp tomato purée
500g sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into ½cm slices

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion for 3-4 mins, add the chipotle paste and paprika, cook for 1 min. Add the tomatoes, beans, tomato purée and 100ml water and cook for 5 mins. Season, then transfer to a shallow ovenproof serving dish.

Meanwhile, cook the sweet potatoes in boiling water for 5 mins until just softened, layer them on top of the bean mixture. Sprinkle over the grated cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 mins, until piping hot and the sweet potatoes are golden in colour.

  1. Sounds delicious, I'd just need to swap out the kidney beans for another sort. Wondering if baked beans would work.
