Yes You Heard Correctly… RAW VEGAN Mince Pies….

December 4, 2012 at 2:38 pm Leave a comment

When I was promoting having a Veggie Christmas a few years ago several journalists were so pleased to tell me that I was telling them to try Vegan MICE Pies…. I had to laugh…..

You know I am partial to a Mince Pie (or 2) – my hubby usually starts to buy or make some around September – however I feel it is something special for December only.

Now do yourself a favour. Do not go into your local super market and buy the plastic wrapped, made god knows when, white refined flour versions that are in abundance – these are not how Mince Pies should taste.

OK if you are a touch lazy or pushed for time like me then at least just buy some frozen pastry (most is vegan and actually says so!) and add in your own filling.

My top tip is to add a blob of (dairy free) cream cheese before adding the pie lid for even more loveliness.

If you want something even more amazing then yes we have it here from our great friend Rebecca Kane…..

All vegan, full of good stuff and RAW too!!!

Delicious!
