What is Aquafaba?
Aquafaba is a recently new discovery. Only within the last 5 years have people started using aquafaba. So what is it exactly? Aquafaba is the cooking liquid from certain beans or legumes, such as white beans and chickpeas that has been whipped to resemble egg whites.
The easiest way to get aquafaba is to use the juice from a can of chickpeas. You could also make it yourself by making a pot of dried garbanzo beans and then after cooking the beans, continue cooking until liquid is reduced in half. Cooking the later way isn’t as easy because you have to make sure the consistency is the same as it would be from a can.
Contrary to what you may be thinking, it actually has a very neutral taste and, when whipped, goes from tannish in color to completely white.
