She’s got an enviable bod and is a dab hand at making healthy but seriously delicious treats – we know, because we’ve tasted them. Naturally, we had to ask Annie for a few of her yummy recipes.

This recipe is super easy too. Here’s what you’ll need:

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 can of cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained

1 red onion, diced

Handful of kale leaves

1 tsp paprika

Pinch of salt

3 Tbsp Happy Pear red pesto

The method:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Steam or microwave the sweet potatoes until soft. While they do their thing you can get the rest of the ingredients together. Heat some oil in a pan, add in the red onion, torn kale leaves and paprika. Cook until the onion softens. Take off the heat and add in the beans and the magic ingredient: pesto! Once the sweet potato is done add that to the mix. Then go to town with a potato masher, which is actually great therapy. Mash it all up and mould into burgers. Brown them in the oven for approx 20 mins and devour.
