Gluten and Dairy Free Options

For gluten free; replace the plain flour in the pie filling with cornstarch then use gluten free chicken stock. For the crust either use a gluten free flour blend for pastry in place of the flour or buy a ready made gluten free shortcrust or puff pastry which is in the freezer section of your store.

For dairy free; replace the milk with lactose free milk and the butter with a dairy free spread. Check the stock for dairy.

Saving Money

It is always cheaper to make pastry yourself especially if you buy flour in bulk. Flour has a long storage life of 12 month to 2 years. Store in recycled glass jars with tight fitting lids to keep out pests.

Consider buying bulk packs of frozen vegetables. They have a long storage life and are just as nutritious as fresh. Frozen vegetables are frozen close to the time they were picked which locks in the nutrients.

Try growing your own carrots. They will grow all year round in most climates. They just need regular watering and well cultivated soil. Try this guide to Growing Carrots.
