We’ve done it: Plant Based and Gluten Free Pie!

Jul 22 2022

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Call your gluten free friends, colleagues and neighbours as their minds are about to be blown. We’ve just launched our latest addition to the Mooless Moo family. Gluten free, plant based and frankly delicious (if we do say so ourselves)!

Catering for both gluten free and plant based diets has had us scratching our heads in the test kitchen for years. Creating a plant based and gluten free pastry that was strong enough to hold the pie filling and tasty enough to match our top notch pastry standards was a serious challenge.

And finally, after hundreds of taste tests (one of the best perks of working at Pieminister!), we think we’ve nailed it!

Anyone with gluten free and vegan dietary preferences can now indulge in our award-winning pies, both in our restaurants and at home. Although you don’t have to be either to make it your pie of choice. It is one of the favourites at our weekly Pie-day Friday office lunch after all.

Our Mooless Moo filling was even crowned Supreme Champion at the 2022 British Pie Awards! In the judge’s words “the moist filling had ‘bite’ and the balance of flavours in the pie was just right”.

This was music to our ears as we endeavour to reduce the range space that we currently give to our beef pies as part of our 2025 Sustainability Goals.
