“SIMPLE navy beans is one of the best foods that we can eat.”

“…He (ALLAH) prescribed for us, dry navy beans, bread and milk.”

“Dry beans (navy beans) and whole bread are good for us. We do not have to go around looking for all kinds of foods. Just one common kind will do. Give the body some time to rest.”

‘THE GREAT POISON dishes that are set before you and that you are dining off of daily, and that some of you eat three and four times a day are:

Number 1: The filthy hog meat

Number 2: Beans that cattle should eat. And, that is what they are made for and not for human consumption: Lima beans, butter beans, field peas, black-eyed peas, and even soy beans are not good for anything but for shortening your life.”

DO NOT EAT field peas, black-eyed peas, brown peas, yellow peas nor red peas. Do not eat the great big lima beans nor the little lima beans. The only kidney-like bean should you eat, as Allah (God) Taught me, is the navy bean. There are the white ones and the red ones.”

“HOW TO EAT TO LIVE. Eat that food that Allah (God) Has Prescribed for us. Even take little simple things such as beans. Allah (God) says that the little navy bean will make you live, just eat them…. He Said that a diet of navy beans would give us a life span of one hundred and forty (140) years.”

Crustless Bean Pie

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beautiful and Beloved Black Queens!!!

The Nation of Islam is almost as well-known for its bean cuisine as it is known for its Black Supremacy Teachings. This is because the small white navy bean, according to the Teachings of Allah to Our Beloved Messenger (PBUH), is the BEST FOOD we can eat.




2 c Navy Beans

1 Stick Butter (1/2 cup)

2 T Whole-Wheat Flour

4 Eggs

1 t Nutmeg

2 c Honey

1 12 oz. can Evaporated Milk

1 t Cinnamon

2 T Vanilla Extract

(Pie crust recipe is below)


Cook beans until soft. (I like to add a little butter to the beans when I cook them.)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In large bowl, mix honey and warm beans.

Blend thoroughly and return to large bowl.

Blend butter, eggs, flour, nutmeg, milk and cinnamon.

Pour into bean/honey mixture.

Add Vanilla.

Mix well.

Pour into pie shells.

Bake about 45-50 minutes until golden brown.



2 c whole-wheat flour

3/4 c butter

5 T cold water

Mix flour and butter using a pastry blender, two knives or a fork until all flour is just blended to form pea-sized chunks.

Sprinkle in water, one tablespoon at a time.

Toss lightly with fork and form dough into a ball.

Divide dough into two parts.

Press between hands to form (2) 5-6- inch patties.

On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll one patty into a circle the size of an upside down pie pan.

Gingerly roll the crust around the rolling pin and unroll it into the pie pan.

Repeat with the other patty.


My son doesn’t really care for the crust, so he came up with the brilliant idea of making it with no crust. I had never heard of a pie with no crust. But I looked it up on the Internet and I saw recipes for Pumpkin pie with no crust. And knowing that before Our Nation started making Bean Pie, they used to eat Pumpkin pies, I was sure it would work. So, if you are not that particular toward crust, this pie is also very, very good without it. Just butter your pie pan real good before pouring the mix into it and bake it just like you would with a crust. The pie in the picture is crustless.

  1. Salaam walakium sister. I have a question about your bean pies. One do you melt the butter before adding it? Also what other seasoning do you add to your beans when you are cooking them. May Allah be pleased with all that you do and you and your family be showered with many blessings. Shukran

    1. Wa Laikum Salaam Dearly Beloved Sister Ericka,

      I’ve found that it’s better NOT to melt the butter. It you just soften it, then the butter sticks together better and the flavor is more powerful.

      When, I cook beans for pies, I don’t add any seasoning.


  2. ASA, I just want to be sure on the measurement Navy Beans. Is that 2c of Navy Beans that has been cook or do you measure the 2c of Navy Beans uncooked?

    1. Wa Laikum Salaam Dear Brother Lloyd X!!!

      I am so happy you are making the Bean Pie! Allahu Akbar! Measure the 2 cups of Navy Beans before you cook them, Dear Brother.
      May Allah Bless You With Good Health, Wealth and Wisdom!

      As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum!
      Your Sister,
      ~Love Allah ❤

    2. ASA. I find two cups of cooked beans work just fine if you only want a couple of 9 inch pies. GIG!

  3. Asa..I got by your recipe to the T my pies taste good and are golden on top but how do I get them to have a darker Brown layer on top?

    1. Wa Laikum Salaam Sister,

      That is a question I really cannot answer. The recipe I have does not give the pies the darker brown layer on top.
      I’ve only used honey in my pies. Maybe using sugar will give them the darker coating on top. I can’t say for sure though. If you try it, let me know how they turn out!


      1. As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum,

        I thank you for your idea, ShaRall, but I beg to differ. I don’t think there is enough cinnamon and nutmeg in the ingredients to cover the entire top portion of the pie. Also, because I use cinnamon and nutmeg in my pies and they don’t get the dark brown top layer.

        However, fam, I saw a video on YouTube in which they said if you FREEZE the butter before you make the pie, then you will get that dark brown coating on top of the pie.

        Unfortunately, I’m homeless and haven’t made a bean pie in over two years and still am not in a position to bake one.

        I would be extremely grateful if you could try it out, fam, and inform me of the results!

        Shukran! (Thank-you!)

  4. As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum, the top layer is from something else not the spices. My pies don’t have the brown layer either. I would love to know how to make them that way. I am upstate New York and would love to start a bean pie business here.

    1. As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Dear Sister Alima,

      Did you see my comment about the butter? Try it and let me know how it comes out. I can’t bake right now or I would try it myself. But I’m anxious to know if it works! Get back to me with the results ASAP! In sha Allah.

      As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum
      ~Love Allah
