Don’t Toss That Chickpea Liquid!


Don't Toss That Chickpea Liquid!

This unusual ingredient is a vegan replacement for egg whites.

  • Liquid from 1 (15-ounce) can of chickpeas
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup organic coconut palm sugar, milled into powder
  1. Preheat oven to 220°.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, add chickpea liquid, cream of tartar and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer on high for 1 minute.

  3. Add sugar gradually; continue to beat until stiff peaks hold in the meringue.

  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon teaspoons of the meringue onto lined baking sheet; leave 1 inch of space between cookies.

  5. Bake for 1 hour, 10 minutes.
