We are big fans of Oumph! here at VeggieVision TV – versatile and easy to cook. So we are super excited to try the range in some delicious recipes too – including this gorgeous meat free Tikka Masala.

Meat free and delicious – Oumph! Tikka Masala

Serves 4


280 g Oumph! The Chunk

1 onion

3 garlic cloves

3 cm ginger

3 tbsp garam masala

2 tbsp tomato purée

½ red chilli pepper

50 g of plant-based margarine

400 g coconut cream

400 g finely chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp vegetable stock powder

4 green cardamom pods

1 lime

1 tomato

½ bell pepper

To serve: basmati rice and cardamom pods, fresh coriander


Peel and chop the onion, garlic and ginger. Chop the chilli. Fry the chopped ingredients with the tomato purée and spices in the margarine. Add the coconut cream, chopped tomatoes and 4 cardamom pods, crushed. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Season to taste with the juice of 1 lime and salt. Add Oumph! and simmer for a further 7-10 minutes. Dice the tomato and bell pepper and add them to the pan for the final 2 minutes.

Cook the basmati rice as stated on the packaging, but add a pair of crushed cardamom pods to the cooking water. 

Chopped coriander is the finishing touch in “Tikka” – Namaste!

The team here recently tried out several of the Oumph! range and we couldn’t pick a favourite – however what we can say is this will be on everyone’s shopping list on a regular basis now – we LOVE it!

Oumph! is epic veggie eating for free range humans!
