Perfect pork pie pairings 

Our porkless pork pie makes a great alternative to its meaty counterpart. Made from innovative pea protein and delicious hot water crust pastry, your guests can still enjoy delicious flavours and authentic tasteEven meat-loving guests won’t be able to spot the difference! 

To go with our yummy plant-based pickings, here are some of our favourite winter dips and crudités. 

  • Chop up some carrots, celery, and cucumber into batons and grab some mini breadsticks to pair with a range of dips such as hummus, vegan tzatziki or sweet chilli sauce 
  • Have a go at making your own hummus with Jamie Oliver’s super simple recipe, it’s bound to impress your guests 
  • Try your hand at making Fuss Free Flavours’ easy sticky onion marmalade, it’s the perfect tangy contrast to the tasty, traditional flavours of our porkless pie
  • To really wow your guests, arrange your crudités in the shape of a Christmas wreath or tree and add a festive centre, such as this delicious Christmas chutney by BBC Good Food
