  1. In a pan, warm up your oil and add in your shallots and sauté until softened.
  2. Add in garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant.
  3. To the pan add in your black beans and sauté for about 3-5 minutes then stir in the spinach and soy sauce and allow spinach to wilt.
  4. For the dressing, just whisk all the dressing ingredients together until smooth and adjust consistency as desired. 
  5. To assemble the bowl, add a serving of beans along with a scoop of rice and pair with a side of vegetables, a drizzle of sauce and sprinkle some fresh herbs and extra spices as desired.


Make sure to rinse and drain black beans really well to remove excess sauce and starch from the beans before using. 

To adjust the consistency of your dressing, add small amounts of what to it as you whisk, making sure to add the water in slowly so it doesn’t go past your desired consistency too quickly.
