Pinto Bean Pie
- 2 cups pinto beans
- small potato
- 1 tbsp baking soda
- 2 pie crust (store bought or handmade will have a blog post about that later)
- 1 c sugar (or 1/2 c stevia)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cans evaporated milk (1 1/2 c if mixing powder evaporated milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
add the 2 cups of pintos to a large sauce pan add the baking soda and potato ( I am told the baking soda and potato help lessen the gassiness) add 4 cups of water and cook your beans as normal. Until they are soft. When they are done drain and remove the potato ( save for stew or mashed potatoes)
Next you preheat the oven to 350
In a blender or food processor ( or by hand) mush up the beans until they are smooth. Then in a large mixing bowl mix the sugar, beans, milk, eggs, vanilla, and seasonings together. Then pour into the pie shells. Place the pie pan/s on a cookie sheet to help with clean up just in case. Bake for 45-60 minutes. Until you can insert a butter knife in the center and it comes back clean.
I promise it is Yummy!!! M liked it and he is picky and typically hates beans of any kind.
