I recently switched from Hackerschool Soylent to People Chow 3.0.1:
At first I was disappointed that the Masa I found didn’t dissolve at all. It was super gritty to drink. Disgusting, actually. But I found a delicious work around. I had been pondering the idea of splitting a soylent recipe into two complementary and differently tasting components that would complement eachother. This seemed like a good opportunity to do that.
First I mixed the Masa, salt, and oil in a bowl, and stirred in water until it was pretty soupy (3.5 cups I think, but I wasn’t measuring exactly). I heated up a pan and made pancake/tortilla type things. It came out to ten pancakes exactly, which works great. Then I mixed the rest of the ingredients, which come out to 92 grams exactly.
I was a little worried about the flavor of the remaining ingredients. I had eaten two of the ten pancakes so I put 1/5 of the powder in a jar and mixed it with a bit more than a cup of water.
The taste was incredible. It was almost… citrusy. It offset the oily corn/potato flavor of the pancakes perfectly.
Anyway, I declared the day’s experiment a success. Not sure if anybody has tried this exact approach before, but I recommend you try it, at least once in a while to add some variety.
Thanks for reading.
