INSTRUCTIONS

1
Make the dumplings

Add masa harina, 2 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt to a small bowl and mix with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Slowly add ¾ cup water and knead until smooth. Use a tablespoon to scoop a ball of dough. Roll the dough into a ball with your hands, then press a divot in the center with your thumb. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining dumpling mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

2
Cook the black beans and dumplings

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add onion, poblano pepper, and ½ tsp of salt to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cumin seeds and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add 2 cups water, black beans, and the broth packet to the pot with vegetables. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Add dumplings one at a time and cook, covered, until puffed and tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer dumplings to a bowl with a bit of broth to keep them moist. TIP: Don’t worry if a few stray beans or onions make it into the dumpling bowl.

3
Make the salad

Add spinach, radish, avocado, just half the lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a bowl and toss to combine.

4
Blend the beans

Carefully pour the soup into the blender with the cashew cheese and purée until smooth. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. TIP: Begin blending the beans on low and finish on high to avoid splashing.

5
Serve

Divide the creamy black beans with masa dumplings between bowls. Top with avocado spinach salad and lime wedges. Enjoy!
