Before you frown up your face or say ‘Yeah right Bro. Jesse!’, I want you to hear me out. (smile) This is my Creative Pause for the month and I want you try something new which is a part of the rich culture of the Nation of Islam. To those that have already tasted Bean Pie before, you already know how great it tastes and how healthy it is.
But to others who are reading my blog that have not, you have to try it at least ONE time in your life. I guarantee it will be just like Lay’s potato chips, you won’t be able to eat just one slice. Bean Pie is better than sweet potato, pecan pie, cheery pie, and even apple pie…no, Mrs. Smith or Sara Lee can not compete.
Of course I know you are asking yourself “Is it really made out of beans?”. The answer is YES! It is made with the great Navy Bean, which the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches is valued to be very high in protein, fats and starches, and it is a safe food for prolonging life. The Navy Bean is known as the pulse in scriptures. That’s why we love Navy Bean Soup so much too in the NOI! And for those who do not like beans, it will not give you an after taste…matter of fact when I first tasted it in high school at the Mosque I thought it was sweet potato pie!
So I invite you to click the ad below and put in your order for your first ever bean pie and trust me you will not regret it! After you try it, send me a comment and tell me what you think.
