Morrisons launches vegan 'Corn-ish' pasty

We’re already seen some great vegan alternatives this year.

The Greggs sausage roll, the Ikea meatless meatballs and KFC’s vegan chicken burger are just a few of the examples.

Now, Morrisons is launching a vegan version of the Cornish party.

They say they were the first supermarket to do so.

The Morrisons ‘Corn-ish’ pasty will be handmade in Cornwall with a recipe that stays as close as possible to the famous original.

It’s been created using a vegan mince, a traditional seasoned mix of potato, swede and onion carefully wrapped within a crimped rough-puff flaky pastry.

Morrisons Pasty Buyer, Steve Halford, said: ‘Some of our customers want to cut down on their red meat intake, so we wanted to offer a pasty that’s meat-free and as delicious as the original.’

It launches across Morrisons stores today and will be available at Pie Shop counters.

It will be £1.75 for one or you can get two for £3.

Morrisons vegan offering also includes Vegan Sausage Rolls, which will cost £1 each or available as part of a 2 for £1.50 offer.

What does the Corn-ish pasty taste like?

With the filling all mixed together, it’s hard to tell it’s vegan.

It’s meaty, packed with veg, warm and comforting.

The pastry is crisp and tasty around the edge.

It’s really a pretty good vegan version so if you’re missing the pasty since going plant-based, this is some excellent news.

Other vegan pasties do exist but being able to pick one up from your local supermarket is exciting.

In other vegan news, someone has deep-fried a vegan Magnum and it looks incredible.

Milky Lane cafe in Sydney is responsible for this act of genius.

If travelling the whole way to Australia seems a bit too far, you could try making it at home – it’s a dairy-free almond Magnum, covered in maple syrup, biscuit crumbs, coconut milk cream and cornflakes, all fried until it’s crispy and golden.

What a dream.
