How to make vegan apple crumble:

  1. Peel and dice the onion and finely chop or mince the garlic.
  2. Drizzle a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onions and garlic for 5 minutes over a medium-low heat until softened.
  3. If using, add in the chilli flakes or powder and stir through for a minute. Set aside for now.
  4. Drain any excess tomato sauce from the tin of baked beans and add the beans to a large mixing bowl.
  5. With the back of a fork, lightly mash around half the beans.
  6. Add the onions and garlic to the bowl.
  7. Peel and grate the potatoes. Use a kitchen towel to absorb any excess moisture before adding to the bowl.
  8. Add in the breadcrumbs, dried herbs, salt and pepper and freshly chopped parsley (if using) to taste.
  9. Mix well with a wooden spoon until a dough-like texture begins to form.
  10. With slightly wet hands, form the mix into burger patties. You should get around 4-6 depending on size.
  11. Allow the burgers to chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. If you don’t want to cook immediately, wrap in cling-film or store in an air-tight container and they’ll keep in the fridge for up to two days.
  12. When ready to cook, pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees / 180 degrees fan.
  13. Lightly brush both sides of the burgers with olive oil and bake for 30 minutes, turning half-way.
