Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of chickpeas. Usually, he heads straight to the sink and leaves the hummus for you to play with. However, there is definitely some fun to be had by sticking with this liquid. Aquafaba revolutionized vegetarian cooking and baking by acting, somewhat convincingly, as egg whites. When whisked, aquafaba thickens and hardens like egg whites, making vegan meringues possible!

Start by draining a can of chickpeas and keeping the liquid (aquafaba). Add aquafaba to a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, vanilla extract, and dairy-free chocolate, if desired. This is it! It can now be incorporated into your favorite dessert recipe.
Chickpeas — also known as chickpeas beans — are a great source of plant-based protein, complex carbohydrates, and dietary fiber, making them a filling, satisfying, and heart-healthy option. They are also packed with many important vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, zinc and manganese. These nutrients are important for heart and bone health, metabolism regulation, and energy production. Adequate folate intake is especially important for pregnant women, as it has been found to help prevent certain birth defects.
Not only is chickpea a great source of protein, fiber and other vitamins, it can be added to a wide variety of baked goods to boost nutrition. Plus, the consistency of blended chickpeas adds the perfect amount of cream to cookies, cakes, brownies, and other foods.
