So I made this a second time and baked the crust without the toppings first and the crust was great. I used the crust with veggie toppings too, it's so versatile. I accidentally soaked cowboy beans instead of adzuki.. (they looked similar in our dark pantry).. so I didn't have the gorgeous purple crust.. but it was still delicious!! I love this user's creative recipes ;)


I made this with a friend and it was delicious! However, because of what we had on hand, we altered the recipe a bit. AND I might have a few helpful tips.

We didn't use Edamame. And we subbed Kidney beans for Adzuki. Only did about 1 tbs of sesame seeds. And as for the nutritional yeast, we made cheese sauce out of it then drizzled it on.

With the crust; It didn't hold together so well, but after it cooled, it was easier to take off the pan without crumbling. So we were thinking, either bake the crust alone, without toppings for 30 minutes or so, so it would not be so squishy in the middle, and the veggies wouldn't be over cooked. And then definitely cool a little before serving.

The flavor combination was AMAZING!

Great Recipe overall!


hey olivia beans! yes, you should be able to find adzuki beans in large grocery stores such as metro, or loblaws (canadian) . The ones I used were from Eden organic they are Asian type beans so you could also find them in asian food stores, if you can't find them you can use black beans to keep the pretty purple crust, if the colour isn't important for you, soybeans and red kidney beans are good substitutes as well. :) good luck!


Oh my.. this looks delicious. What are adzuki beans, can I find them at a regular grocery store?
