I love bean pie but I really didn't like this one. This recipe didn't say anything about the "skins" of the beans. It says to "mash" the navy beans. Mashing did not get rid of the skins and they made the consistency of the pie horrible. Maybe if the beans were pureed it would be ok. Also the pie wasn't sweet enough for me so I would add more sugar if I made it again. Read More

A great treat! Sounds a little unconventional but it is delicious! I first heard of this type of pie from a friend and never could find the recipe. Now that I have it I'm sure it will replace Pumpkin Pie as my family's favorite for holidays!:-) Thanks for sharing!!!!!! Read More

I will not be making this pie again. It has a very mealy texture and you can taste the beans. I processed the beans in a food processor until completely pureed - actually I think pureed navy beans would make a very good sandwich spread if mixed with some seasonings. Read More
