This is the most decadent and unusual marriage and synchronicity of proteins and amino acids, iron and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to deliver what’s considered a “complete protein”. All of which are achieved in the form of the often disparaged party food “dip.” Alas:
1 ½ c cooked black beans, or 16 oz can, rinsed
1 T molasses
1 T apple cider vinegar
t lime juice
¼ c chopped red onion
2 cloves garlic
1 small seeded tomato
¼ c soaked, drained raisins
¼ t black pepper
Blend all in food processor or blender, adding water for consistency if necessary.
Serve with chips or toasted baguette.
