Leading piemaker Pieminister is launching two comforting vegan versions of some of Britain's best-loved pie flavours
With autumn rolling in, our thoughts are turning from salads and sandwiches to hearty pies and warming dishes. Just in time for the chilly weather settling in, legendary pie-makers Pieminister have announced that two new plant-based pies will be joining their range next week.
Launching on September 29 in Waitrose and Ocado, the two new pies might be meat-free but you’d never know it as Pieminister have cleverly replicated the tastes and texture of two of their best-loved meat pies using only plant-based ingredients.
First up is the Mock-A-Doodle, a vegan take on the classic chicken and leek pie that’s packed with tender pieces of Tofurky’s ‘chicken’, leek, kale, smoked garlic, sage, and a creamy white wine sauce.
The company has also taken famous award-winning steak & ale pie and given it a delicious vegan makeover to create the Mooless Moo pie using jackfruit.
Speaking about the new pie, the company said: “Our famous award-winning steak & ale pie… but completely plant-based? Yep, that’s right. A juicy VEGAN ‘steak’ and ale pie. Say whaaaaaaat?!
“We thought it was about time we made our bestselling Moo pie into a vegan version (and we reckon we’ve made our best plant-based pie yet!). Mooless Moo is filled to the brim with jackfruit ‘steak’, cracked black pepper, ale, and rich gravy all wrapped in our famous plant-based pastry. It’s so meaty without the meat, your most carnivorous friends will be thinking it’s a mis-steak.”
The new plant-based pies will be available to order online as well as in Pieminister restaurants from Tuesday 29th September and Waitrose & Ocado
