Ginger Black Bean Bowl with Creamy Ginger Sriracha Dressing
2 tsp olive oil
1 shallot, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch ginger, grated (or less depending on preference)
2 – 15 oz cans black beans, rinse really well
2 cups spinach
2 tsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
Pinch of white pepper (highly recommend over black pepper for this)
Pinch of salt
Cilantro for topping

Creamy Ginger Sriracha Sauce:
2-3 tbsp tahini
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2-3 tsp sriracha
2 tsp maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Pinch of white pepper
Juice of half a lime
2-3 tbsp water or more based on your desired consistency


In a pan, warm up your oil and add in your shallots and sauté until softened. Add in garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant. Add in black beans and sauté for about 3-5 minutes then add in spinach and soy sauce and allow spinach to wilt.

To make dressing, just whisk all the ingredients together until smooth and adjust water based on preference. Make sure to add water in slowly so it doesn’t go past your desired consistency too quickly.
