I have stopped and looked at these pies in the supermarket for years, yet there was always something stopping me picking them up and putting them in my trolley. However, on a recent trip to tesco, I found them to be on half price special so decided to splash out and try them once and for all. THE PRODUCT: Each package contains 4 individual pies which are described as 'deep fill country' - they are essentially a vegetarian alternative to a minced beef and onion pie, using soya instead of beef. COOKING: This product can be cooked in the oven from frozen and takes 25-30 minutes depending on whether or not you have a fan assisted oven. ... Read the complete review

I first came across the Linda McCartney vegetarian food range about twelve years ago, when I was an impoverished student. Of course, in those days, ready meals were a bit out of my price range, which meant I usually got them when visiting the hotel of Mummy and Daddy. Now I'm a proper grown up, I still only have them occasionally, but that's more because prepackaged food is far too bad for your health to have every day. For those of you not familiar with the brand, the Linda McCartney range was set up in 1991 by Linda McCartney, the late wife of Paul McCartney. All the foods in the range are suitable for vegetarians and some, like this product, are also ... Read the complete review

I acquired these the other day after my mum bought them for herself and my dad and neither of them were very keen on them! I haven't tried them before and 'waste not, want not' decided to give them a try. There are 4 of these pies in a box (2 for me as my mum and dad had eaten 1 each) A box costs around £1.99 at Sainsburys which isn't bad value as they're big pies and one with some mash and peas would make a filling meal. "Country Pies...Soya mince in rich onion gravy within a light flaky pastry pie" I have tried Linda McCartney Soya mince before and enjoy it so was hopeful these pies would be good. The box ...

Some years ago I worked in the School Kitchens where soya mince was then an everyday part of cooking. It was used to bulk out the fresh mince to make it go further. Linda McCartney products are appetising and I only recognised this myself when I bought them for one of my daughters. My first ever venture into the vegetarian food world was a Linda McCartney sausage, we had hot dogs for tea and tasty was the operative word, it was hard to believe that you weren't eating an ordinary meaty sausage. I knew that I had enjoyed soya mince so I was fairly sure that Linda McCartney Deep Country pie would go down well. No good buying one for ... Read the complete review
