Aquafaba Is A Vegan’s Answer To Most Things
Well, also to those allergic to eggs. You know the foam that forms while legumes are being cooked? That’s aquafaba. This foam can be made into anything from a frothy meringue to marshmallows.
About 30 mls of aquafaba can be used instead of an egg. You can add sugar and vanilla to whip it into a crisp meringue peak. In this new world of veganism, French chef Joel Rossel has found a worthy egg substitute. So this festive season, you don’t really need to keep away from the dessert table. Lean right in.
