The Vegan Pasty range from Warrens Bakery was in response to ‘huge demand’ according to the Cornish business.
The range comprises an Original Cornish Pasty, Vegan Green Thai and Vegan Fiery Mexican pasties.
The Vegan Green Thai Pasty “offers a classic taste of the Far East”, according to the company, with creamy coconut and an aromatic blend of Thai spices, with pulses and veggies including chickpeas, broad beans and sweetcorn.
Meanwhile, spice lovers’ taste buds will be put to the test by the super-hot Vegan Fiery Mexican Pasty, which contains red kidney beans, chilli, chickpeas, potato and swede.
The Original Cornish Pasty isn’t technically a Cornish pasty, as it doesn’t contain beef as per the Cornish Pasty Association definition, “but as far as a Vegan Cornish Pasty goes, this is the closest you’ll get”, according to Warrens.
“We’ve reworked our traditional glaze and pastry and come up with a wholemeal pastry and vegan-friendly glaze – topped with distinctive ‘V’ pastry markers, so there’s no mistaking your vegan lunch.”
Jason Jobling, master baker at Warrens Bakery, said: “We’ve developed these pasties using the finest ingredients and even created a new pastry blend of wholemeal and white flour to complement the flavours.
“Our vegan pasties are hearty, wholesome and contain all of the star credentials of our traditional range. We are delighted that our award-winning Cornish pasties will now be able to be enjoyed by all.”
The vegan pasties are available in all Warrens’ bakeries in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Bristol, as well as its franchise store in Birmingham.
