I'm late to the aquafaba party but now I want to try it out.
Does any have any tried and true recipes yet or is it too soon?

What are you looking to make? Like a marshmallow fluff or meringue or macaron where awuafaba is the main ingredient, or something like a cake or bread where it is added into a mix as an egg replacer?

For macarons, the floral frosting recipes are great. Macarons are definitely fussy though, so be prepared for some disasters before you get them right.

For baking, i often just take omni recipes and sub 3 T of aquafaba and it works fine. The vegan richa one hour cinnamon rolls are great, and maybe a good one to start with.

For vegan cheeses, try avocadosandales. Her mozzarella is life changing. By far my favorite vegan cheese. It calls for lactic acid, but says you can sub lemon juice. I think the lactic acid is worth it though, and now I use a little bit in all of my vegan cheesy recipes.

Zsu Dever has an aquafaba cookbook coming out in October.

Thanks for the suggestions! I didn't have anything in particular in mind. I just wanted to make aquafaba and then use it in a easy recipe so that I can see what the fuss is all about. :)

Good to know! I have Zsu book on bowls and love it so I hope this book is equally as good!

Somer McCowan has a cookie recipe that uses aquafaba which is really good.

I also make brownies with it but I haven't yet typed that recipe up!

That chocolate chip cookie recipe is really good. I have made it several times.

I also used that recipe and cut down on the chocolate chips a bit amd added mini dandies marshmallows to make smores cookies. They were so good.

Oooh I'm looking for a recipe for Victoria sponge using aquafaba. I tried just subbing in for eggs in an omni recipe and it failed miserably!

I made these for a shelter fundraiser today, but I don't know if I'm super into them. They taste great, but they are super thin and flat. Usually my cookies are soft and fluffy, so I'm like "whuuuu...??" Most of them ran together. I made some last night with EB and then when Mavis woke me up super early, I decided to make some more, but used coconut oil (because that was the last of the EB). The ones with coconut oil are virtually the same, so that's a pretty okay sub, if you're out.

The ones in the picture on the recipe are also flat, so don't feel like I messed them up. They're fine. I'm gonna try to take Julia Child's advice and NOT apologize for them.

Mine don't come out flat at all Hollie, though they did once when I used margarine spread (vitalite for anyone in the UK) rather than block butter (stork brand) so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Hmm. Maybe it's something super basic like it being time to replace my baking soda or something.

If your dough is really soft you can refrigerate it for at least a half hour first and that'll stop your cookies from spreading too much.

Yes, refrigerating the dough for a while before baking will help with the spread. But now I think when I used the marshmallows mine spread a lot too. So sorry, that might be my fault. But did they taste good?
