Product Description

  • Good Karma Shawarma high protein soy-based strips
  • Discover all our recipes on our website,
  • The Vegetarian Butcher presents Good Karma Shawarma. We hacked the recipe of a traditional chicken shawarma and added some good karma to it. Wrap it up in a flatbread or pita, and top with some lettuce, tomato, and creamy garlic sauce. It's 100% plant-based yet you won't believe that it's not meat as it's indistinguishable from the original. We strive to have meat enthusiasts love our products, so that they realise that they can go meat free without compromise for one or more days a week.
  • Our Good Karma Shawarma is kebabsolutely delicious and high in protein & fibre, whilst dodging most of the saturated fat and cholesterol found in animal based meat. Just like workhorses were replaced by tractors a hundred years ago, animals will be replaced by sustainable new techniques that produce meat from legumes and grains. All of our ‘meat' lessens the impact on the environment of traditional animal agriculture and meat. Go the extra mile with our products by swapping out animal based meat and be much more efficient in the use of land, soy, and fossil fuels. We've created the best and most delicious way to convince meat lovers that meat no longer has to come from animals - what goes around comes around.
  • Our founder, Jaap Korteweg, a 9th generation Dutch farmer, became a vegetarian after the outbreak of swine flu in the Netherlands in 1998 when he was asked to store the carcasses of millions of dead pigs in his cold storage. He thought about becoming an organic farmer, but couldn't bring himself to slaughter his own animals after they became part of the family over the years. However, he kept craving the taste and texture of meat. So together with producers of vegetable protein, scientists and innovative chefs, his main goal became to develop and produce plant-based meat that is as good as if not better than the original. Now he is bringing them to the UK, in chilled and frozen options!
  • We've created a wide range of plant based proteins, all of which are vegetarian, and more than 70% are vegan with our ambition being to become 100% vegan! In the meantime, we believe that we can have a greater impact sooner if we use today's technology to make meat-free delicious as we develop the technology of the future to become fully vegan.
  • Enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • Jaap Korteweg, 9th generation Dutch farmer and founder of The Vegetarian Butcher:
  • "My goal is to produce delicious vegetarian meat that tastes even better than the original. Just like workhorses were replaced by tractors a hundred years ago, animals will be replaced by sustainable new techniques that produce meat from legumes and grains. My ambition is to give meat lovers the experience that they are not missing out when going meat-free!"

Makes a lovely, tasty family meal for a TV night

5 stars

Really delicious shawarma which tastes great in a pita bread with a dollop of non dairy yogurt and salad. Makes a lovely, tasty family meal for a Saturday night in front of the TV, instead of take away. So much cheaper too.

Delicious - give it a go!

5 stars

Tried this in an effort to cut down on meat, it being Veganuary and this product was on offer... as a family of carnivores I wasn’t expecting much to be honest, but oh my - it’s delicious! And indistinguishable from meat; my family were totally fooled (and I still haven’t confessed - shhhh, don’t tell them!). I’m sure it’ll become a family staple. Quick, easy, healthy and yummy!

This was pretty good when mixed with salad and sau

4 stars

This was pretty good when mixed with salad and sauce in a wrap. Not bad at all. I actually like the taste and texture. Not to everyones taste obviously. In my opinion, they are like the Vivera kebab meat. I will buy again. Someone said " Also realized that they are made by Unilever. So definitely won't buy again" I am wondering what's wrong with Unilever! They make a lot of major brands. Helmans, Ben and Jerrys, Pot noodle, Magnum etc

Unilever, so won't buy again

1 stars

Tried these, and found they were not nice. Also realized that they are made by Unilever. So definitely won't buy again.

A good filler with plenty of flavour

5 stars

Great stuff - served it up with pasta, tomato sauce and some nutritional yeast for a warming vegan feed 😍


5 stars

Tastes just like the original vivera kebab before they changed recipe and ruined it. Really pleased to have the good stuff back. Bit pricey for small amount , hopefully demand will increase and price will lower with higher production.
