Learn how to make latkes from the new cookbook Aquafaba by Zsu Dever using chickpea water!
Have you heard of aquafaba? I first learned about it when I started seeing photos on Facebook of people making meringues and marshmallows. From the liquid that comes in a can of beans! That’s right, the stuff that I’ve always drained off and thrown down the drain. Who would have thought this bean “juice” could be used as an egg replacer?
Zsu explains in Aquafaba how to prepare the bean juice to use it in recipes. She also talks about what kind of recipes it works best for, and how to store it for later use.
In addition, it turns out there are many, many other ways to use aquafaba besides making meringues.
For example, you can make quiche.
Even ice cream!
Here’s the recipe for latkes from the book so you can give aquafaba a try!
