We love pies here at Dalriata, and we’re on a mission to make Germany love them too. To do that, we’ve worked hard to find the tastiest, highest quality pies, and we’re very fortunate to have found a talented, passionate piemaker right here in Berlin. This Works Within produce these wonderful handmade puff pastry pockets using only the best ingredients available. We have several varieties available – and you should try them all! – but this one is filled with butternut squash, spinach*, and feta cheese. Dare we say it might just be our favourite of the range? Even the most dedicated carnivores grudgingly admit that this particular pie is good enough to keep them coming back for more.
This vegetarian savoury pie is hugely popular with customers in our shop in Berlin. And with good reason – they’re absolutely delicious! You can really taste the love and expertise that’s gone into creating these recipes. We’ve been partnering with This Works Within since the very start of Dalriata, when we were just a pop-up store in an ice cream shop closed for the winter. In fact, we were the very first place to sell their wares, so we’ve both grown up together!
These delicious vegetarian pies are incredibly easy to prepare. Simply take the frozen pie, put it in the oven at 180ºC, and wait! As the heat takes effect, puff pastry rises to form a light, flaky golden crust, and after 35-45 minutes it’s ready to eat.
Because of their pasty-like shape, our vegetarian pies can be enjoyed on their own as a snack or light lunch, but we like to eat them as part of a complete meal, with mashed potatoes, some vegetables such as asparagus or broccoli, and of course some gravy. Be warned, though – they’re very filling! Tuck into one of these and it’ll keep you going for hours.
Vegetarian savoury pies are a great comfort food on those gloomy winter days, but they’re still an absolute treat any other time of year. Whether you’re a dedicated vegetarian, or you’re just trying to cut down on meat, these pies are a delightful way to get a good dose of veggies while satisfying your cravings for some good old stodge. They taste so good, they might as well be home-cooked.
*Sometimes it might be kale instead of spinach – it varies from batch to batch according to season. But either way, it’s yummy!
