    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:2hr  ›  Ready in:2hr10min 

    1. First make the suet pastry
    2. Seive the flour, salt and baking powder into a blender.
    3. Add the suet and turn onto low speed
    4. Add the water or milk until you have a firm, dry dough.
    5. Roll out most of the dough and line a bowl
    6. roll out the remainder and save for the lid
    7. Chop the onions finely and fry slowly in a little oil.
    8. Chop the mushrooms into large chunks and add these as well as the Quorn pieces to the onions.
    9. Meanwhile make a basic roux sauce with butter, flour and milk and then add the tsp of marmite. A few drop of browning will darken it nicely.
    10. Mix the sauce into the mushroom/Quorn mix and then pour into the pastry lined bowl.
    11. wet the edges of the pastry and place the lid on top. crimp the edges well.
    12. Tie a pudding cloth over the top and then steam for 2 hours being careful not to let the pan dry out.
    13. Delicious served with mash or other seasonal root veg :-)
