So recently I did something totally crazy, and made vegan meringues from, wait for it…..chickpea water! Insane right?! I’d seen floating around on the internet other people doing this so I just had to try it out for myself, and guess what? It totally worked!
Now I love chickpeas, they’re such a versatile food that can be used in soups, salads, dips etc. but I’ve never actually thought about using the water, so it has always gone straight down the drain. However, this time I put that water to one side and into my mixer it went. Could it really be that this strange murky (and rather smelly) water could turn into some deliciously sweet meringues? Well, there was only one way to find out!
I was pretty surprised at the results..here’s what happened!
