Oil company BP debuted the Satay Vegan Pie this week at New Zealand locations of its gas station eatery chain Wild Bean Cafe. The new handheld pie features a reformulated vegan pastry dough made with margarine instead of butter, and is filled with vegan chicken, cauliflower, potato, peppers, coconut, and broccoli. “Wild Bean Cafes have offered a vegetarian option for some time, and we have listened to our customers asking for a vegan choice—so [we] are proud to now make this available,” BP general manager Adrian McClellan told media outlet Newshub. “Wild Bean is known as having the best pies, and we expect our vegan pie to be in hot demand. We think it’s so good that many of our regular meat pie-lovers will enjoy trying the Satay Vegan Pie instead of their usual meat favorite.”
