Leicestershire pie-maker Pukka Pies is about to launch its first ever vegan range.

The Syston-based firm, which describes itself as the nation’s favourite pie brand, has reinvented two of its best-loved flavours to make them vegan, complete with The Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark.

As of today, a vegan chicken and mushroom and a vegan minced steak and onion pie will be available from Morrisons supermarkets, so that vegans, meat reducers and flexitarians can tuck in and enjoy a Pukka pie.

The vegan chicken and mushroom pie features soy protein vegan ‘chicken’ pieces married with sliced mushrooms and a savoury vegan creamy sauce, encased in 144 layers of Pukka’s signature golden puff pastry.

It will give you regular email updates on the latest from restaurants and bars in Leicestershire.

The vegan minced steak and onion pie is made with minced soy protein vegan ‘steak’, finely chopped onions and a rich gravy.

“As the People’s Pie, we want to make sure there’s a Pukka for everyone. Shoppers are increasingly looking for tasty meat-free options but don’t necessarily want to spend hours cooking,” said Rachel Cranston, head of marketing at Pukka.

“Our two vegan pies tick both these boxes and they’re an exciting addition to our well-loved range, with recipes people recognise and know Pukka for.”

Vanessa Brown from the Vegetarian Society said: “The popularity of vegan food and drink products shows no signs of slowing down, and this is thanks to brands like Pukka launching tasty vegan options.

“It helps to give people increasing variety and these tasty pies have been accredited with the Vegetarian Society Approved vegan trademark which will appeal to a lot of shoppers looking for their next vegan-friendly meal.”

You’ll find Pukka’s vegan chicken and mushroom and vegan minced steak and onion pies in the pie aisle of Morrisons from Wednesday, September 16 and Sainsbury’s vegan aisle from Wednesday, September 23 (RRP £1.89).

Pukka’s vegan pies will continue to roll out in supermarkets nationwide throughout the rest of the year.
