So get this… I was in L.A. in March and I was in an Uber going to the airport; as I was flying back to NYC. My uber driver w woman at 6AM and we started chatting about health, wellness and cooking. She was a vegan and told me about this new way to make meringue with the liquid from canned chickpeas.
She got my attention! She told me that this liquid gets light and fluffy just like meringue when you beat it with sugar. So basically it’s a vegan meringue. I thought that this was quite unique; and so I had to try it for myself.
The name of this delicious fluff like substance is called aquafaba. I love the name. I tried making it at home. I couldn’t believe how easy it is. So how do you use it once you make it?
Let me share two recipes with you that we created. But feel free to use this fluff anyway your imagination lets you.
Just remember that you must beat it for 15 minutes before it begins to thicken.
