I went to the Oumph! launch party recently to celebrate them coming to the UK and being stocked in Tesco. I love all the food that was served that night and wanted to share the recipe for my favourite hoisin tacos so you can create your own at home.

They’re so tasty and you could be forgiven for thinking they were real meat tacos. The texture and flavour of Oumph is nothing like I’ve ever tasted and is a huge step for the plant-based world.

From Oumph’s very own top chef Fredrik Kampenberg (who’s considered to be one of Sweden’s top chefs for plant-based foods). These amazing plummy tacos are like crispy duck pancakes but 100x better.

    1. They were really good! Totally recommend. Gonna be posting another oumph recipe this week. ???

    1. Aww that?s such a shame! Hope they stock it near you soon & you manage to try some. It?s amazing and can be used in so many ways. It?s really delicious! Gonna be uploading another recipe with it in soon. Stay tuned! X

    1. Yes I love that! I?m gonna be sharing the tandoori one from the launch too. That was probably my second favourite. ??Me too! I tried them a few years ago so I?m happy that they?re more mainstream now and everyone else can try them. Love it! X

    1. I couldn?t agree more! They?re fantastic! I hope you?ll give this tasty & super easy recipe a try. Oumph and this combo are life changing. So good! ??Thanks for reading Emma! ?xx

    1. I know! It?s so good! It?s a European thing sadly.. but I have no doubt specially with the wicked kitchen connection they?re building on that it will come to the US. They?re looking at creating something together in the future so that could bridge the gap. So excited to hear more about that!

    1. You really do! They?re amazing and can be used and cooked in so many different ways. I?ve tried it fried, baked, deep fried & boiled so far. All great in their own way.

    1. I know right! They haven?t made it to the US yet.. just Europe atm. But I have no doubt with their huge success that time will take them there.

  1. Oooh god these sound bloody lovely ? thank you for yet another awesome recipe! I had such a long list to try now
