Caramelized Black Bean "Butter"

Submitted by: courtney (from Cooking Light)

Caramelized onions lend the black beans an intriguing sweetness and complexity, which is highlighted by balsamic vinegar and cocoa.  Spread on a sandwich of sliced ciabatta with grilled vegetables and arugula. It's also great with baked tortilla chips or veggies for dipping.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat (spray with pan spray or use water or broth as sauté liquid). Add onion; sauté 10 minutes or until golden. Place onion, beans, vinegar, cocoa, salt, and paprika in a food processor; process until smooth. Place bean mixture in a bowl. Sprinkle with parsley.
