We proudly present our Caribbean Bajan Pie.
In the Caribbean,
macaroni pie is very popular, every café and restaurant will have
their own variation.
At The Veggie Deli, we have combined orzo pasta (the pasta shape that looks like rice) with rocket, red onion and our very own home-made tofu cheese with home-made Bajan (means made in Barbados) seasoning to bring you a bit of Caribbean warmth here in good old Blighty.
Our bajan seasoning contains spring onions, cloves, curry powder, lime juice and medium chillies. The finished product won't blow your socks off, rather it gives a lovely mild to medium warmth.
We like to eat ours on warmer days at room temperature with salad or served warm otherwise.
After purchase, store in the fridge and use within 3-4 days.
Can be eaten at room temperature or served warm, heat in a medium oven 180°C/375°F or Gas mark 4 for approx 15-20mins.
Can be microwaved but we prefer oven warmed.
Suitable for freezing, allow the caribbean bajan pie to thaw before following heating instructions above.
Allergens: soy, wheat, mustard.
Tofu is not the bland white blob you may think. It is cholesterol free and low in saturated fats and an excellent source of protein.
It looks after your colon and lungs and is very good if you're prone to over heating or suffer with high blood pressure. Move over milk; it's an excellent source of calcium and plenty of other minerals such as iron, phosphorous, potassium and sodium, essential B vitamins, choline and fat soluble vitamin E.
Not only a tasty green leafy veggie, rocket is a fabulous digestive tonic with its bitter and pungent properties. If you're feeling a bit stagnant, rocket is great at getting that stuck energy moving and supporting your liver.
Packed with loads of phytochemicals with big names it works hard to protect you from carcinogenic substances and makes sure all those key metabolic functions are working tip top.
Chillies really are the central heating stars of the food world. They have antioxidant properties and warm the body by increasing blood circulation. They're also great for stimulating your digestive system.
Onions are not only the heart of a good meal they really are a superfood and have many amazing health benefits.
They are an exceptionally strong antioxidant, have anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antiviral properties. They're packed with vitamins A, C and B complex. They support your kidneys and help lower cholesterol.
We hope you enjoy our caribbean bajan pie.
