Supreme Bean Pie at Blue Seas Express & Catering

Available at Blue Seas Express & Catering !
Sitting among dozens of boarded-up homes in the Westside area known as the Bluff, this cafeteria-style restaurant is run in partnership by Muslims and Christians seeking to bring positive change to their long-overlooked neighborhood. The menu’s highlight is the Supreme Bean Pie, made from navy beans, which Nation of Islam founder Elijah Mohammed told his followers would make them live to 140 years old. While Mohammed died at 77, this is a seriously tasty pie: at once rich, sweet and savory with a crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth crust. $2.99 per slice/$12.99 per pie.
