Just got my first Hot&Savory order, and I absolutely love it. Such a game-changer. To be able to eat a lot of it, I’m looking for easy ways to switch the taste up a bit.
There are already a few great threads about recipes, which I’m sure are fantastic, but for me the point of Huel is spending as little time (and money) on it as possible, with ingredients that one might already have at home that don’t need to be prepared, and I hope we can gather all the little ways of spicing it up in just one thread.
As an example: I just added a bit of butter and a big chunk of Cheddar I had in my fridge (didn’t even need to grate or cut it), just after the water, and it did enhance the taste.
I guess you could add some veggies and tofu to bulk it up. Quite cost effective , or if you don’t mind the carbs you could add a flatbread along side. Instead of cheese you could instead of water add a milk to make the curry milder, people do that with ramen. You could of course add noodles or rice too. All I can think of at the moment !
I think sauce is your friend here. I like spice and Tomato and Herb, although tasty, is lacking spice for me (because it’s meant to!!), so I like to add siracha to it. Tabasco has been recommended too here. What sauces and condiments have you got at your place? I would just start experimenting with a teaspoon at a time!! Probably going to reduce the impact on nutritionals, compared to adding cheese too.
Just got mine a few days ago, and have been having Hot and Savory for dinner. Since in my pre-Huel days I used hot sauce in nearly everything, this is the first thing I reached for to liven things up. It’s a solid upgrade for flavor and taste no question, but what was immediately shocking is how my tolerance for very spicy sauces has plummeted significantly.
I had been using Huel powder exclusively for just over a month, mainly to jump start some Covid inspired weight gain, and my normal dashes of ghost pepper sauce nearly killed me. Will take it much easier on the sauce tonight or else use something more pedestrian like Tabasco.
Though one thing I have noticed is that Huel Hot and Savory soaks up the sauce like a sponge. I need to add it very liberally to get it to blend well throughout. Habernero based sauces have been working a little bit better in this regard to be honest, as the pepper has more of a citrus like quality that seems to blend better.
Yeah mate, many people tend to hate on T&H for it’s lack of flavor, and to be honest I have joined in on this chorus. However, my opinion is beginning to evolve a bit as I am starting to view T&H as more of a blank canvas for me to create my own flavor profiles from.
Last night I added sweet corn, pico de gallo, cayenne pepper, and fresh diced cilantro to it and it was a lovely combination.
