Mince Pies

No Christmas is complete without mince pies, they are much easier to make than you would think and very tasty.


  • 17 ozs 500g Shortcrust Pastry
  • 14 ozs 400g Vegan Mince Meat
  • For Rolling Out On Plain Flour
  • For Sealing and Glazing Soya Milk
  • For Greasing Vegan Margarine
  • For Sprinkling Soft Light Brown Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 200c, grease a 12 hole bun tin.
  • Onto a floured surface roll out the pastry to desired thickness.
  • Cut out 12, 3-inch circles and 12, 2 ½ inch circles.
  • Press the larger circle into the tray and fill with mincemeat, do not over fill them as this will cause overspill while cooking.
  • Brush around each edge with a little soya milk and gently press the smaller circle on top, press the edges down with a fork.
  • Brush each with soya milk and sprinkle with a small amount of brown sugar, piece each twice with a fork.
  • Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool on a wire cooling rack then remove from tin.
  • TIP: Using a crinkle edged cutter makes for a fancy finish.
  • TIP: These can be frozen until required.

Vegan Calling started as a number of scribbled down notes, recipe cards and our adaptations of favourite meals! We originally wanted to create a place for all these recipes to go so we originally thought of a cookbook. However, an online database allows us to not only avoid various stains and spills, we’re also now able to share our recipes with the rest of the web. Non-Vegan friends that come around for meals are always surprised at how delicious our various starters, main meals, desserts and everything in between taste so good! They’re always asking how we make them so wonderful without using animal products – this site lets them and everyone else know how we do it!
