Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 medium beets
  • 1 cup cooked adzuki beans
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped (1 Tbs.)
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup raw cashew butter
  • 2 tsp. mirin (rice wine)
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt, plus more to taste
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the beets (and enough water to cover) to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 35-40 minutes (until the beets are tender).
  3. Remove from the heat, drain the beets, and slip off the skins under cool running water. Cut the beets into 1-inch pieces, and set aside.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Add the onion, and sauté for about 8 minutes (until it begins to brown).
  6. Add the garlic and salt, and cook for about 5 more minutes (until the onions caramelize).
  7. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the mirin sauce and balsamic vinegar; set aside.
  8. Place the beans in a food processor; add the beets, cashew butter, caramelized onions and vinegar. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides of bowl as needed.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
