Aquafaba Fluff

The secret to this healthy vegan fluff, which can be used in a variety of ways, is drained chickpea liquid. Try it as a vegan dessert topping, in vegan cocktails, or with sauces that need just a little extra volume and flavor.

Chef's Notes

Aquafaba is the liquid from canned chickpeas. The consistency coming out of the container will be soft peaks. If you let it stand for 3-5 minutes the peaks will get a lot stiffer, however separation will start to occur at the bottom of the container. We recommend waiting the extra 3-5 minutes to let it sit and get stiffer, then skimming what you need off the top.
