Ingredients

  • 2 baking sweet potatoes (about 600g)
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 6 Plant Pioneers Chorizo Shroomdogs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 x 400g tin black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped chives, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp Boursin Plant-based Garlic & Herb soft cheese

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7. Scrub the sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place on a lined baking tray, rub with ½ tablespoon olive oil and bake for 50-60 minutes or until tender. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Peel the outer skin away from each shroomdog, then pull apart into pieces and roll into small balls between your hands (around 6 balls per sausage). Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion for 3-4 minutes until softened. Stir in the garlic, paprika and shroomdog balls and fry everything for 5 minutes over a medium-high heat, stirring regularly. Tip in the black beans and fry for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Halve the cooled sweet potatoes and scoop out the flesh leaving a thin layer of shell. Return the potato skins to the oven, cut-side down, and roast for a further 10 minutes until crispy. Reduce the oven temperature to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6.
  5. Mash the scooped-out sweet potato flesh in a large mixing bowl and mix in the soft cheese. Stir in the black bean mixture and chives, being careful not to break up the chorizo balls. Season to taste.
  6. Remove the potato skins from the oven and turn cut-side up again. Load the black bean mixture into each half and return to the oven for 15 minutes. Garnish with more chopped chives and serve with salad.
    Waste not
    Spread leftover plant- based Boursin onto pizza bases. Grill the leftover chorizo shroomdogs; slice and use as a pizza topping along with some mushrooms, red onion and spinach.
