20 things you can make from chickpea water

Aquafaba translates to “bean water” and its uses are pretty exciting. It can be used as an egg replacer and recipes such as; meringues, mayo, butter, cheeses, baked goods and much more! It is wild to me that I have been wasting this stuff for so long when it can be used to make all these vegan, cruelty free goodies. As the population grows the devastating effects of animal agriculture on the planet are becoming more apparent and can’t be supported for much longer. Big companies are starting to jump on the plant based foods band wagon because of an increase in demand and the potential for profit but getting creative and using things like; chickpea water as an egg/ dairy replacement we can save money, become less dependent on big companies and live more sustainably. I’ve included a link to the vegan societies websites with the 20 recipes, I challenge you to pick one and see how you like it,  Send me a picture or let me know about your experience with it in the comments. I am going to give the garlic aioli a try…

  1. okay, i am so inspired and excited about this aquafaba stuff. i heard about it a while ago and your post is finally putting me to the challenge! i plan to try the marshmallow fluff and put that onto the faba brownies, the mayo, the butter, AND the ice-cream. i make vegan banana ice-cream often with just straight up frozen ripe banana chunks so i think i’ll try replacing the strawberry that is suggested with my bananas for this one. ewwwww and maybe i’ll save some of the marshmallow fluff for the ice-cream too 🙂

  2. i tried making the marshmallow fluff and it did not fluff up. i am guessing it may be because i was using a vita mix blended? at one point it got slightly puffed yet as i increased the speed it went back to liquid. then i tried making the ice-cream. again it did not fluff in the straight aqua faba blending yet i added the slightly frozen bananas anyway and it did turn into a soft serve ice-cream texture. now i will just wait for it to freeze for several hours-then eat 🙂
