How to Store Vegetarian Pies
Thanks to the lack of fresh meat in a vegetarian pie, storing these pies tends to be easier and more versatile than their meat-based counterparts. However, similarly, storing vegetarian pies will depend on whether they are fresh or frozen upon purchase:
Short-term storage of vegetarian pies generally includes fresh pies you intend on eating in a couple of days. Most fresh vegetarian pies can be typically kept in the fridge for up to 5 days - but it is always advised to check the individual storage instructions left by the producer.
Storing vegetarian pies long-term would include storing frozen pies or if you want to freeze a fresh pies. Long-term storage includes placing the pie in the freezer for up to 6 months unless otherwise stated by the producer.
Reheating frozen vegetarian pies is a super simple and convenient way to enjoy this pie every time! Whether you want to reheat the entire pie or just a slice, wrap it in some foil and place it in the oven for a few minutes or until it is cooked through. Alternatively, you can also reheat a vegetarian pie by placing it in the toaster, air fryer or grill.
How to Serve Vegetarian Pies
Vegetarian pie'a are incredibly versatile and, as such, can be served in a variety of ways. Some vegetarian pies are super light and work perfectly as a lunch or snack, whereas other vegetarian pies are packed full of hearty vegetables and work better as a dinner. Vegetarian pies have so much flavour they often work amazing as a standalone food, but they can also be dressed up with some salad, vegetables or a potato dish on the side.
Our Favourite Pick
The choice of vegetarian pies are Mud foods is overwhelming, with so many delicious flavours to choose from. However, our personal favourite is the mushroom and asparagus pie - which earned a gold award at the British pie awards in 2017.
