  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and fry the onion over a medium heat for 8 mins until soft. Stir in the garlic, fry for 1 min, then add the tomatoes, breaking them up with a spoon. Simmer for 10-15 mins over a medium-low heat until thickened. Season with the vinegar.
  2. Meanwhile, pierce the potatoes all over with a knife and cook in the microwave for 10-15 mins on high, turning over halfway through cooking. Alternatively bake in a hot oven for 1hr 15 mins or until cooked through. Heat the grill to high.
  3. Put the potatoes on a baking tray and brush with 1 tbsp oil. Grill for 3-4 mins each side until the skins are crisp. Stir the beans and spinach into the tomato sauce and cook for 5 mins until the spinach has wilted. Add a splash of water if it’s very dry.
  4. Split the potatoes and spoon over the butter beans. Crumble over the salad cheese and scatter with parsley to serve.
