Recipe by Romy London.

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 3 – 4


1 pack Pulled Oumph! (or similar)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
8 large romaine lettuce leaves
Vegan chilli mayo or guacamole to serve (optional)

For the mango salsa:
450g mangos, finely diced
½ finely diced red onion, rinsed
1 red pepper, finely diced
1 green chilli, finely diced
A handful of fresh coriander
3-4 tbsp fresh mint
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper


1. To prepare the grilled mango salsa, slice off both halves of the mango around the stone. Leaving the skin on, score each mango piece in a criss-cross pattern and place it skin down onto the hot BBQ.

2. In the meantime, fry the Pulled Oumph! in the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan for 4-5 minutes or until done.

3. To assemble the mango salsa, peel and cut the grilled mango into small cubes and add it to a large mixing bowl alongside the finely diced and rinsed red onion, red pepper and green chilli.

4. Sprinkle in a handful of finely chopped fresh coriander and fresh mint, then combine the oil, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt and black pepper in a small jug and drizzle it over the salsa. Mix well to evenly coat the salsa in the dressing.

5. Assemble your tacos by filling 1-2 tablespoons of the mango salsa into a lettuce leaf, top with 1-2 tablespoons of pulled Oumph! and finish off with a drizzle of chilli mayo or guacamole to serve.
