I tried the savory recipe that was written on one of the inserts I received - I think it involved a vegetable bouillon cube (I used Marmite instead) and peanut butter, and that was pretty darn good. So I thought, why not try miso? I have to say that works out well. For those who like savory Huel, give it a go.
I use the unflavored won to make soups all the time. It is great. I was also thinking of making a pizza dough out of it. The only problem is that if it is not in a soup, the earthy flavor can be a bit strong, and I don’t know how to cut through it. Well, they are more like a savory oatmeal. All you do is just make chicken broth from sodium free Bouillon or chicken stock concentrate. If you have homemade on hand, you can use that as well, or you can buy it in the can, but if you were eating this a lot and trying to save money, that is going to be pricy. If you are vegan, then you can just do the same thing, except make vegetable broth. So you make up the broth, and you add in place of the water to make it very thick like an oatmeal. This will be about 2 cups. The instructions are a bit inaccurate when you add it to the shaker when it says to add 14 ounces of water, shake it, and then add 10 ounces of water. What they really mean is add water until it reaches the 25 ounce Mark. Because the powder absorbs so much water, you are actually adding more because there is an amount of time when you were adding water, but the ounces aren’t going up. That is why about 2 cups is what you add. When you drink it from the shaker, you may actually be drinking about 3 cups of water although you did not think you added that much. That is completely fine because you need the water anyways. I was just pointing that out. But anyways, you do about three scoops of Huel with 2 cups of broth. When you make the broth, you can make it extra strong like if it says due one packet per cup, due three packets for 2 cups. Then mix in an egg, add some cheese if you wish, and definitely add seasonings because if you don’t, it will be a bit bland. Then, heat it up. Yes, this is perfectly safe because it is actually fine to cook eggs in the microwave. I used to do it all the time. You can actually make scrambled eggs in the microwave and the egg does Cook. You could replace the egg with some dairy free yogurt or milk. You can also just leave it out. It is very handy to make for work as well if you eat lunch at an office because you can just keep in the fridge and heat up. You can also add water to the vanilla one and turn it into a breakfast oatmeal and add dried fruit or a little bit of butter or whatever. I don’t think there has been any testing to prove what microwaving it does to the nutrition, but I think it is fine because research on other foods show minimal losses when compared to Bacon. Further, they seem to add extra vitamins and minerals, so I think it would be OK.
We have a pizza crust recipe for you! This is a recipe I’ve been dying to try, so you have to tell me how it goes if you make it. my.huel.com/pizza
OK. I will try it later on when I get some stuff to make pizza.
Interesting culinary adventures! Huel soup, eh? I bet it is good. Let me just ask you this: do you think putting Huel into your soups enhances the flavor? Or is it primarily a way to boost the nutritional value of your soups? Or maybe this is more a way of adding a couple of things to your Huel to make it more interesting, and to make it a soup? Thanks!
