The Plant-Based Egg Replacement You Will Love
Aquafaba has got to be my favorite new thing in the world!
Okay, that might be overselling it a bit, but it’s definitely up there in the top twenty?
Because aquafaba is an easy, affordable, and perfect plant-based way to replace eggs in just about any recipe and make it even more moist than it would have been with cholesterol-filled eggs!
What Is Aquafaba?
Aquafaba is the liquid that remains when you cook beans, and what you’ve probably been pouring down the drain when you make homemade hummus.
The liquid resulting from cooked chickpeas – also known as garbanzo beans – is all the rage right now.
In fact, new aquafaba products are now coming out on a regular basis, such as Fabanaise – a plant-based mayonnaise – and Fora Food’s new vegan butter, Faba Butter.
The reason being is that this liquid contains compounds that are identical to eggs – namely, the starch and protein. Thus, you can use them interchangeably without sacrificing texture, unlike many other traditional egg replacers. The look and taste of food is also not altered when using aquafaba.
You can use aquafaba to bind, foam, thicken, emulsify, or gelatinize just about anything, the same way you would use eggs. Use it to prepare any dessert – including meringue and mousse – waffles, mayo, corn bread, whipped cream, and just about anything else you can think of.
