What is Aquafaba & How To Make It From Scratch? | Vegan Baking 101

Aquafaba is the name for the viscous water in which legume seeds such as chickpeas have been cooked. Due to its ability to mimic functional properties of egg whites, aquafaba can be used as a direct replacement for egg whites in some recipes. This means that aquafaba is perfect for vegan baking when you are making meringues, icing, fudge, and many other recipes.

Ingredients
  1. Dried Chickpeas | 1 Cup
  2. Water | 6 Cups, divided
Instructions
  1. Soak 1 Cup of Dried Chickpeas in 3 cups of water for at least 8 hours. Preferably overnight.
  2. Drain and add the soaked chickpeas to a medium sized pot. Add 3 more cups of water.
  3. Bring water to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 50 minutes. The chickpeas should become soft and tender.
  4. Remove the chickpeas from the water, but allow the cooking water to reduce to 1 -1.5 cups of water. This is the aquafaba.
  5. To store, place the cooked chickpeas into a container or jar and cover with the aquafaba. I like to store mine in the fridge until I'm ready to eat.
  6. Use the aquafaba in meringues, macarons, nougat, icing, fudge, and marshmallow.
Notes
  1. If you don't want to make your own aquafaba, you can just buy a can of chickpeas and use the liquid within the can.
