Waste not want not chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas

You might find yourself needing to use Aquafaba more and more. Aquafaba is an egg replacer for those who have allergies to eggs or who are vegans. Aquafaba is found in those awesome cans of chickpeas.

You simply open a can and strain the juice from the chickpeas.

So, now your left with a can of chickpeas. Oh no, what to do with the leftovers? You can simply add them directly to your salad, pita sandwich, curry dish, pasta dish or make a batch of hummus.

Roasting chickpeas for a nutritious snack is an great option too.

Remarkably you can also make a whipped cream replacement using chickpeas juice (Aquafaba).

One of my discovers about using chickpeas was when I had purchased a box of chickpeas spaghetti. During our boiling process I had noticed how the water would foam up. Right then I said, this is why it’s used as an a egg replacement.

Garbanzo bean or chickpeas are full of fiber, vitamins A, C and E, folate, magnesium, potassium and iron.

My favorite go to vegan baking items are Aquafaba, xanthan gum and vinegar used as an baking leaveners. Along with baking soda and or baking powder.
