  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the potato wedges on a large nonstick baking tray and toss with 1 tbsp oil. Season and roast for 30 mins. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, heat the remaining oil over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 5 mins until starting to soften. Add the garlic, crushed chillies and paprika; fry for 2-3 mins until fragrant.
  2. Tip the onion mix into a food processor with the butter beans and chickpeas and blitz to bring everything together to a chunky mix. Add the sundried tomatoes and the parsley; season. Pulse to combine to a chunky consistency, then use your hands to bring the mix together and shape into 4 large burgers.
  3. Put the burgers on a lined baking tray and bake for 25 mins until golden and crunchy on the outside. Meanwhile, mix the dressing ingredients together with 2-3 tbsp of water to loosen. Serve the burger with the wedges and salad, and drizzle over the dressing.

Get ahead: You can make the burgers 24 hrs ahead up to the end of step 2, then keep covered in the fridge.
