LAVAL, Que. — St-Hubert has introduced three new refrigerated meatless pot pies to Quebec grocery stores.
With plant-protein foods becoming more popular, St-Hubert wanted to offer new options to its customers looking to reduce their meat consumption without compromising on flavour. The brand’s new vegetarian ‘chicken’ pot pie, vegetarian ‘chicken’ and broccoli gratin and vegetarian-chili pot pie are now available now in all major grocery chains in the province.
With no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives, the meatless pot pies provide between 12 g and 13 g of protein per serving. The vegetarian ‘chicken’ pot pie contains morsels of soy protein with a taste and texture reminiscent of chicken. The recipe also features the typical vegetables found in a chicken pot pie and a creamy sauce. The vegetarian ‘chicken’ and broccoli gratin features the same soy protein, as well as carrots, broccoli and a cheesy sauce. The wheat-flour crust is also enhanced with cauliflower to help increase fibre and protein intake. The vegetarian chili pot pie is topped with a combination of textured pea protein, quinoa and black beans, as well as all the typical chili ingredients (tomatoes, red peppers, onion, garlic, corn and cheddar cheese).
The three new vegetarian pot pies are certified as ‘Aliments préparés au Québec’ and cooked at the Groupe St-Hubert’s Boisbriand facility.
