Very unique! I like the idea, and it's not every day that a pie comes chalked full of fiber! If you've made this did you use store bought or homemade pastry?

Are white beans the same as cooked navy beans?

I think that a white bean like cannellini beans or Great Northern beans would work well. I'm not a bean expert but I think that navy beans are different from these other two white beans that I just mentioned, but any of the three could probably be used (lol, I'd venture to guess )

Any kind of white bean is fine. This is a recipe, that I think came from the Caribbean; I remember guys selling them on the street corners in NYC around Flatbush, in a Jamaican/Haitian neighborhood.

The taste/texture is very similar to a pumpkin, or sweet potato pie - because the 'palate' of the beans is so bland, it's the spices and add-ins that give it its flavor.
