What is aquafaba?
The unsalted soaking water from tins of chickpeas is known as aquafaba. It is naturally high in protein and is often used as an egg white alternative in food and cocktails. It whips up into glossy stiff peaks with barely any flavour and can be made into meringues, soufflés and macarons, making it the perfect vegan egg substitute.
