Spinach stew with Oumph! The Chunk



  • 150g raw spinach, washed and roughly chopped
  • ¾ vegetable stock cube
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée (paste)
  • 1 large red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 small garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 140g Oumph! The chunk
  • 1 tsp porcini mushroom powder
  • 200g cooked basmati rice, to serve



  1. Heat a good splash of water (around 200ml) or one tablespoon of oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and sweat for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the tomato purée, paprika, vegetable stock cube, chilli, red pepper, mushroom powder and Oumph and stir thoroughly. {If cooking with oil, add around 200ml of water}. Cook for around 7-10 minutes or until most of the moisture in the pan evaporates. Add the spinach and keep stirring until the spinach wilts, season with salt and black pepper if needed.
  3. Serve immediately over rice and enjoy.


You can use kale instead of spinach in this recipe.

You can have this with mash potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams couscous, cornmeal, bulgur wheat and any or other grain of your choice. You always ask me what type of rice I cook with, I always use basmati rice because it has the lowest arsenic content.
