What is special about Chickpea water?
Aquafaba or Chickpea water is nothing more than the liquid from a can or jar of chickpeas. When you cook dried chickpeas in water, the water will become Aquafaba as well
This liquid whips up beautifully - just like egg whites. You can use it to make meringues, mayonnaise or angel food cake. Aquafaba works as a simple substitute for eggs. 3 tablespoons of chickpea water equal one egg.
When you buy cans or jars, always keep in mind: read the labels and make sure there are no preservatives and stabilizers or any other harmful chemicals added. By the way, Aquafaba freezes well.
