  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Clean and slice the potato into wedges. In a bowl spray with 10 sprays of oil, sprinkle in the paprika and mix to coat. Lay on a baking tray and cook in the top of the oven for 30 minutes, turning half way through.
  3. Finely dice the onion, mushrooms and garlic. Finely chop the spring onion and parsley.
  4. Spray a pan with 10 sprays of spray oil and saute the onion until soft. Add the spring onion, garlic, cumin and chopped mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes until mushrooms are well cooked.
  5. Meanwhile use a fork or masher to mash the beans until well mashed. Add in the mushroom mixture, parsley and mix until well combined. Season well.
  6. Shape the mixture into 2 patties around 1 inch thick and refrigerate.
  7. Put a non stick pan on a medium heat. Brush one side of each patty with a little vegetable oil and put in the pan oil side down. Cook for 3-5 minutes, then brush the top with a little oil and turn carefully. Cook for a further 3-5 minutes.
