We are delighted to launch our BRAND NEW range of super-tasty, veggie Bakes across Ireland!! We’re so proud of these beauties! These three gorgeous meals are all made with real ingredients and are NOW available in our Happy Pear food stores and in SuperValu and Centra stores nationwide. Our delicious Bakes range includes a Veggie Lasagne, a Shepherdless Pie and a Tomato and Sweet Potato Bake, suitable for vegetarians and/or vegans. Each bake provides 2 or 4 of your five a day and they’re all less than 450 calories!
Our Veggie Lasagne, with lovely veg and feta, contains 2 of your 5 a day, is less than 450 calories, and is suitable for vegetarians. This dish has been a firm favourite ever since we opened our doors in 2004. We know that a great lasagne is a labour of love, so to help make it more accessible, we’ve adapted the recipe so that you can enjoy it as a Bake at home.
Our Shepherdless Pie is a comforting and healthy veg and potato pie that is low in fat, is less than 300 calories, and provides 2 of your 5 a day. It’s also suitable for vegans. This recipe comes from our popular Happy Heart course that Dave and Steve have been running for years. Thousands of people have taken the course to help reboot their health through food – it’s packed with wholefood and high-fibre recipes, that are low in fat, and our Shepherdless Pie is one of the most-loved recipes on the course (people enjoy making it for years after they take the four-week course!).
Our Tomato and Sweet Potato Bake is a hearty dish of baked aubergine, celeriac and cheese and provides 4 of your 5 a day, it’s also less than 400 calories, and suitable for vegetarians. A really good Italian friend of ours introduced us to Parmigiana and we started to make it in our Church Road café. Over the years, our recipe has been through many iterations. It’s a recipe loved by many of our customers, so we featured it in our first cookbook. With our Bakes range, we wanted to make super-tasty, healthy food more accessible for everybody so, again, we’ve adapted our Parmigiana recipe so you can enjoy it as a Bake at home.
Additionally, to celebrate the launch of our Bakes range, we’re running competitions across our Twitter
pages this week, giving away these delicious Bakes and other Happy Pear goodies. Also, we’ve teamed up with SuperValu to run The Great Veggie Bake Off competition on SuperValu.ie
, giving away a one-night stay and half-day Dynamic Vegetarian Cooking course for two people, at Ballymaloe Cookery School
, Co. Cork. Finally, keep your eyes peeled for details of tastings of our yummy Bakes in a SuperValu near you!
