Making your own pie from scratch can be daunting for some, but the truth about ready-made Great British pies is much scarier. The majority are processed, containing over half our recommended daily allowance of salt and limited nutritional value.

We’re here to counter that by celebrating British Pie Week with some of our favourite healthy, savoury pie recipes, full of fresh ingredients and plenty of the nutrients we need. Here are some to try for yourself:
