Recipe Ingredients for Black Beans & Quinoa with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

1 cup Quinoa
4 cup flowerets Broccoli, Flower Clusters
2 1tsp Olive Oil
15 oz Beans, Black Turtle Soup, Mature Seeds, Canned
1 clove Garlic
2 2/3 oz Slivered Almonds
6 tbsp Chipotle Peppers
3/4 cup Raspberries
0.33 tbsp Syrups, Maple
1 dash Salt, Table

Recipe Directions for Black Beans & Quinoa with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the quinoa and water with a pinch of salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer and cook until quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  2. In the meantime, preheat a large pan over medium heat. Toast the almonds, tossing them frequently, until they?re honey brown in spots. Remove from pan. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of the almonds for garnish, the rest will go into the dressing.

  3. Now, in the same large pan, saute the broccoli in oil and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, tossing frequently, until tender. When it?s done, just let it sit in the pan uncovered.

  4. Now prepare the sauce. Place the garlic clove in a small food processor (I use the Magic Bullet) and pulse to chop. Add the almonds (except for the reserved 2 tablespoons) and grind to a coarse powder. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. If it?s too thick, thin out with a little water.

  5. To assemble, toss the quinoa, black beans and broccoli together in a mixing bowl. Reserve about 1/3 of the dressing. Pour the rest of the dressing into the mixing bowl and toss everything to coat. Transfer to plates, drizzle with the extra sauce and garnish with almonds.
