This week (1st – 7th March) is British Pie Week, which is a week-long celebration of all things pie – from making them to eating them.
Pies are an extremely popular and delicious British dish, but we know that the restrictions that come with eating the Paleo diet can make pie-eating difficult!
So, as part of celebrating British Pie Week, we thought we would share some great Paleo-friendly pie recipes with you.
Steak, Ale and Mushroom Pot Pie
Steak and Ale pie is a pub classic and a British favourite, so we were really glad to come across this Paleo-friendly version.
You can either serve the pie filling (braising beef works really well for this) as a stew by itself or add the Paleo crust to create a delicious pot pie.
Paleo Chicken Pot Pie
Protein: 28g | Carbs: 20g | Fat: 43g
Another pot pie style recipe, but this time made using chicken thighs and veggies.
The Paleo-friendly pie crust melts in the mouth and perfectly complements the filling.
Lamb and Sweet Potato Pie
Protein: 44g | Carbs: 25g | Fat: 36g
This Paleo take on a shepherd’s pie switches out the usual mashed potato topping with sliced sweet potatoes and it works so well.
It’s made really simply, using lamb mince, veg and a couple of spices to bring out all of the flavours.
You could even swap the lamb for beef mince to make a cottage pie, if you so wish!
Curried Meat Pies
Protein: 3g | Carbs: 14g | Fat: 10g
These curried meat pies look very pasty-like and can be made using any sort of leftover cooked meat.
This recipe uses leftover spiced keema, but you could easily use any sorted of cooked meat mince, like beef, lamb or pork.
Country Beef and Vegetable Pie
This delicious Paleo-friendly pie uses cauliflower for the crust and is filled with rump steak, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes and rosemary.
So, there you have it – five Paleo-friendly pie recipes that you can try this British Pie Week.
Let us know in the comments below if you give any of these recipes a go!
