Place broccoli rabe in a large microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water. Cover with wet paper towel. Heat on HIGH for 6 to 8 minutes, until tender, but crisp.
In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine remaining ingredients. Heat through, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove broccoli rabe from microwave and drain water. Add black bean sauce and toss in a bowl. Serve warm.
