Put the onion, garlic and ½ stock cube in a pan, cover with water by 2.5cm, bring to the boil and simmer with a lid on for 10-15 minutes until the onion and garlic are really soft. Heat the grill to high.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the onion and garlic from the stock and put in a food processor or blender with the butter beans, tahini and some seasoning. Add 100ml of the stock and whizz until a loose mash-like texture forms. Add a splash more stock if it’s too thick, then tip into a pan to reheat.
Mix the paprika, smoked sea salt and chilli flakes together with 1 tbsp olive oil. Stir with the meatballs until they’re thoroughly coated, then space out on a non stick baking tray.
Grill the meatballs, turning halfway, for 8-10 minutes, until dark golden and cooked through.
To serve, spread some of the creamed beans on each plate, and top with the meatballs. Finish with the yogurt and a pinch more paprika. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing and green beans.
