Without knowing your pantry options, two dishes spring to mind. First is possibly too obvious. Chinese style black bean sauce, stir fried broccoli with chillies and toasted graham cracker crumbs with honey.

Second is a savoury black bean cheesecake with broccoli, and a graham cracker honey crust. Would probably need the obligatory Chopped Arugula salad.

Geeta - thanks for letting us know it could be any dish. Here are some ideas.
Appetizer or main: black bean soup or stew (with meat if time and taste permit), serve in two small bowls, one with a broccoli garnish (pesto or deep fried, like deep fried parsley), the other with a graham cracker honey dumpling.
Dessert 1: deep fried graham cracker cups (size of mini muffins) filled with a black bean honey chocolate cheesecake mix, and a garnish of candied (with honey) broccoli.
Dessert 2: black bean chocolate brownies with a set of two cream cheese frosting, side by side, red and green for Christmas time - one with broccoli, one with cranberry sauce.
Dessert 3: (if the pantry and your knowledge support this). A Japanese style dessert using the black beans instead of red bean paste.
Good luck (and please tell us what you eventually make!)

How about a quiche or breakfast style hash using eggs, chopped broccoli, black beans, add cheese and top with graham crackers that have been mixed with the honey as a crunchy topping?
