Popular plant-based pie bakery Clive's Purely Plants is launching two exciting new products – the world's first Vegan Quiche Lorraine and a comforting Creamy Cauliflower Quiche.
In a statement sent to TheVeganKind Managing Director at Clive's Pies Esther Pearson, says: "Clive's have been at the forefront of plant-based innovation for 30 years and we are delighted to be leading the way once again with these vegan quiche. Our clever Clive’s team have perfected the recipes and we are very proud of the results”.
“We’re so grateful to the network of fantastic wholesalers who distribute our products to every corner of the country as well as the many long-standing local customers who are always willing to support us and try our new products”, she added.
Clive's Purely Plants work with the finest organic and locally sourced raw material when possible. The secret to Clive’s signature egg replacement - which has the perfect eggy quiche texture - is created using okara, which is the whey from making soya blend. Ingenious given the company’s minimal waste policy. Kala Namak, a kiln-fired rock salt with a distinctly sulphurous tones used in South Asia, is added to create a the unique flavours.
“As a family following a 100% vegan diet we were still seeking that comforting indulgent creaminess in our food, which we created in the Creamy Cauliflower Quiche. The bacon replacement we use in the vegan Quiche Lorraine is tempeh, made locally in Somerset, which we marinated with smoked paprika and maple syrup", says Esther Pearson.
"Honestly, with food like these quiches it makes plant-based eating really easy and tasty", she added.
Clive's has been the UK leader in innovating pie products for more than 30 years. A moment of spiritual enlightenment in the 1970's transformed a Devonshire man called Clive from ordinary bloke to animal loving plant pie-oneer. Vouching to do right by all living creatures, he dedicated himself to making amazing pies purely from plants. Now that he’s retired, Clive’s is no longer one person, but all of Clive’s, a family run business, proud to share his original vision and can-do attitude.
All Clive's products are 100% plant-based, organic and produced in Clive’s new bakery in Dartmouth, Devon. The packaging is plastic free, which is part of the company's strategy to lower emissions.
Clive’s is always looking to do right by the planet, hence their decision to use recyclable packaging which is 100% Plastic-Free.
Focusing purely on the power of plants, Clive’s range has evolved from a Mushroom Pie sold off the back of a bicycle, into a range of pies, tarts, roasts and now quiches, that are 100% vegan and organic and many gluten-free. Clive’s Creamy Mushroom Pie is still a bestseller!
