Vegan Buddha Bowl with Pulled Oumph!
Oumph! had been on my list of vegan meat replacements to try for quite some time before I finally bought a pack of their 'Pulled Oumph!’ about a month ago. It comes frozen, and once I’d bought it it was sat in my freezer for a couple of weeks before I actually got round to trying it… and wow, I wish I’d tried this sooner!
This blog post isn’t sponsored, it’s just full of love for a) the insanely delicious Oumph! products and b) the superhumans behind the brand. They had a stand at Vegan Life Live last weekend, and they were serving their Oumph! canapes on the backs of electric guitars - I’m sure that gives you a strong idea of how awesome and fun they are!
Anyway, onto the main point of this post - the recipe. This was the first thing I made using Oumph! and I was so incredibly happy with how it turned out that I’ve made it multiple times again since. The Oumph! mixture that I create in this recipe goes really well in a wrap, too, which is great for work or college lunches.
So let’s get into the best bit!
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium white onion, sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, finely diced
Approx. 3 cups (200g) mushrooms, sliced
2-3 cups of spinach (depending on preference)
1/2 packet of Pulled Oumph!
Pinch of salt
1 large tomato, diced
1 avocado, mashed with a pinch of chilli flakes, salt and pepper
A big bunch of coriander, chopped
1/2 cup (100g) cooked rice of your choice
1 tbsp black sesame seeds
1. Heat up the olive oil in a large frying pan for about a minute.
2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes. If you’re making this into a bowl instead of a wrap, start cooking the rice in a saucepan if you haven’t already.
3. Add in the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Add in the Pulled Oumph! and cook as directed on the packet. Two minutes before it’s due to be done, add in the spinach. With some occasional stirring, the spinach should wilt but don’t worry if it takes a little longer than planned.
5. Once done, remove from the pan. Serve it in a bowl with the other toppings, or chop up the Oumph! mixture a little and put it into a warmed up wrap and eat as is, or wrap it in foil and take it to work/school. Enjoy!
