“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 quiches.”

Devon-based Clive’s Pies has created a 100% plant-based quiche lorraine.

Described as the world’s first, the quiche is made from okara – the whey from making soya blend- to give the quiche a “perfect eggy texture”.

The shortcrust pastry case is filled with smoky maple-cured tempeh pieces, paprika, and marjoram.

Kala namak- a kiln-fired rock salt often added to South Asian cuisines for its characteristic taste also adds flavour to this recipe.

In addition, Clive’s has rolled out a Creamy Cauliflower Quiche, which is made using a creamy blend of cauliflower, kale, garlic, and turmeric.

‘Forefront of plant-based innovation’

“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 quiches,” Esther Pearson, Managing Director at Clive’s Pies said.

“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.”

She added: “Our clever Clive’s team have perfected the recipes and we are very proud of the results.

‘Complement our vegan selection’

Waitrose buyer for vegetarian and vegan, Charlotte McCarthy, told Vegan Food and Living: “We are always looking for new and exciting dishes to add to our vegan range and we’re delighted to be the first supermarket to launch these delicious plant-based products from Clive’s.

“The two new quiches complement our existing vegan selection perfectly, offering our customers a new plant-based option that we’re sure they’ll love.”

Both the plant-based quiches have an introductory price of £2/165g and roll out in Waitrose tomorrow and in independent retailers across the country.
