no i haven't

it doesn't sound that good, but a lot of stuff that doesn't sound good can be delicious

i used to love liver pie and that doesn't soud good either



anyway, i found a couple of recipes for you if you wanted to make it.



#1 Mexican Bean Pie



INGREDIENTS:

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans

1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives

1/2 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon chili powder

ground black pepper to taste

5 (10 inch) whole wheat tortillas

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup salsa (optional)

1/2 cup sour cream (optional)



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10 inch round cake pan or springform pan.

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, mix black beans, pinto beans, refried beans, olives, corn, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Season with cumin, chili power, and black pepper. Cook and stir until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Lay one tortilla flat on the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Spread 1/4 of the bean mixture on the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese lightly over the bean mixture. Repeat layering, ending with a tortilla. Top with remaining Cheddar cheese.

Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with salsa and sour cream for garnish

#2Bean Pie

3 (16 ounce) cans any colored bean, drained and mashed

3 large eggs

1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1 tablespoon fresh lemon (or orange) juice

1 cup evaporated milk

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell



Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.



Combine all ingredients except pie shell and stir to blend. When well combined, pour into pie shell.



Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until center is set.



To serve, add a dollop of freshly whipped cream to each slice.





i think both can be easily veganised enjoy

what kind of bean pie are you referring to? i've had a japanese bread roll filled with sweet bean paste.... those are really good. if it's the same idea, then i imagine it would be tasty.



not sure where to find one though, the info you gave was prety limited... maybe a google search is in order.



that second recipe sounds good- sounds like the sweet bean paste i had but in a pie.

ok, i did a google search just typing in "bean pie" and the only things that i could find not mexican (i'm assuming that's not what you're looking for) was a recipe for "muslim navy bean pie." since you asked about a halal market i'm thinkin' it's some kind of middle eastern dish. here is a link to a recipie:

and pictures!



http://muhammadfarms.com/muslim_navy_bean_pie.htm



it looks super yummy, like pumpkin pie.... it might just be easier and cheaper to make your own. you could use an egg substitute and soymilk instead of evaporated milk. the 2nd recipe vicky gave sounds good too. i just might try this out, i have lots of beans in the cabinet....



hope this helped a little.

Tofu would have worked for the eggs, I think. Maybe some agar agar as a thickener, too. Did you try condensing the soymilk at all? If you didn't, that could be why it didn't set properly, too. How much tofu did you use (1/4 cup blended tofu=1 egg)? Hmmm...I'll need to look over some vegan pumpkin pie recipes I've seen to see if I can figure it out....
