Nutritional Information

This recipe is made with kidney beans and tastes like the best pumpkin pie you have ever had!


  • 4 cups red kidney beans, or cranberry beans boiled soft
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cups water from boiling the beans
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 3 cups evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (batata) cut into small cubes
  • 10 cloves
  • To garnish:
  • grilled naan, see recipe
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • pineapple head, for tossing the bread


  • 1. Soak the beans in water overnight. Change the water and boil until soft in abundant water.
  • 2. Put the beans (and the water in which they boiled) in a blender a puree.
  • 3. Strain the beans to get rid of the skins and undissolved solids.
  • 4. Pour the beans, coconut milk and half the milk into a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • 5. Add the rest of the milk, sugar, raisins, cinnamon, cloves and sweet potatoes and boil for 10 minutes. Stir regularly to avoid sticking.
  • 6. Boil until it has reduced to about ¾ of the original volume. (The cream of beans will get much thicker when chilled).
  • 7. Serve the beans chilled with the grilled naan on the side.
