Learn how to make aquafaba, also known as the starchy liquid that results from cooking beans (or from a can of chickpeas), why you would want to, how to use it as an egg replacer, and so much more!
Whipped Aquafaba Egg Whites Replacer
- Drain the chickpeas liquid (brine) from the can (from scratch instructions in blog post) into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Save the chickpeas to enjoy in another recipe (like chickpea blondies!)
- Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whisk the brine until foamy, about 1 minute. Next add the cream of tartar. Whip aquafaba on high speed until it becomes very fluffy and forms semi-stiff peaks, around 5 to 7 minutes.
- Whipped aquafaba is done once it looks similar to whipped egg whites and the peaks will hold on the whisk.
- Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 1-2 days. However, after 24 hours the aquafaba starts to deflate!
Aquafaba Whipped Cream
- Drain the chickpeas liquid (brine) from the can (aquafaba from scratch instructions in blog post) into a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer or stand, whisk the brine until foamy, about 1 minute.
- Add the cream of tartar and continue to mix for 5 minutes on high until it becomes very fluffy and forms stiff peaks.
- Pour in the vanilla extract and turn the mixer back on high. Slowly add the sugar until the mixture is very fluffy. It should take 5 -7 minutes total to fully incorporate all of the sugar. By the end, the mixture should form stiff peaks and look glossy.
- Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 1-2 days. However, after 24 hours the whipped cream starts to deflate!
Egg White Replacer– Whipped aquafaba can be used in place of whipped egg whites in recipes by folding it into the batter or mixing ingredients into the whipped batter, such as aquafaba whipped cream
Storage Tips – Whipped aquafaba does not store well long term in the freezer. However, aquafaba brine (liquid) can be frozen in an ice tray for 2 to 3 months.
Cooking Tips- Aquafaba from scratch is more time-consuming but doable. You have to soak dried chickpeas, then cook them. After that, you simmer the cooking liquid down to the consistency of the canned liquid/brine. Consistency is similar to that of liquid egg whites, but yellow/brown.
