Method:


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / gas mark 4, and boil a kettle.
  2. Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1cm pieces. Place in a saucepan and cover with boiling water and add a pinch of sea salt. Simmer for 10 mins until softened.
  3. Meanwhile, finely chop the garlic and remove the stalk from the portobello mushroom. Place the mushroom on a baking tray and sprinkle over the garlic, a pinch of sea salt and drizzle over 1/2 tbsp oil. Place in the oven for 10-15 mins.
  4. Finely slice the spring onions. Peel and de-stone the avocado and slice thinly.
  5. Drain and mash the sweet potato. Drain the pre-cooked black beluga lentils and mix with the sweet potato, the spring onion and smoked paprika. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Form the mixture into 4 burgers and dust in the coconut flour.
  6. Heat a frying pan with 1/2 tbsp oil and fry the sweet potato and lentil burgers for 3-4 mins each side until golden brown.
  7. To serve, place the sweet potato and lentil burgers on a plate and layer over the sliced avocado. Serve alongside the baked portobello mushroom and the rocket. Drizzle over the juice from the lemon.
