It’s official, we’re in full festive mode here at PBHQ. For me, as soon as my mid-month birthday is out of the way, Christmas is fair game.

liverpool fc launch ‘meat-free match day’ pie

Liverpool Football Club (liverpoolfc.com) has teamed up with Quorn to introduce a meat-free pie to its match day offerings at home stadium Anfield. The steak pie, a perennial English football favourite, has been updated with a Quorn filling, a swap that research shows could cut over 100 tonnes of carbon emissions in just one game, if all spectators made the change. Former Liverpool FC players John Barnes and Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock launched the new pie at Liverpool’s game against Burnley in August, and took to the streets ahead of the game in a match day pie van.

shiitake mushrooms

With a rich, savoury taste, shiitake mushrooms are a common ingredient in cooking; their earthy flavour make them a great substitute for meat products in a variety of dishes. Primarily cultivated in Japan, they grow on the decaying wood of deciduous trees. Shiitake mushrooms can be purchased either fresh or dried, with the dried version packing a more intense flavour. If adding to a soup, the dried mushrooms can be added in directly, but with other recipes they need to be softened in hot water before using. Shiitakes are low in calories, and contain good amounts of fibre and some B vitamins. They have compounds that help lower cholesterol, meaning that they may help to boost heart health. 1 LillyPuds Premium Vegan and Gluten-Free Christmas Pudding Made using vine fruits, apples, apricots, almonds and…
