Has anyone heard about this technique?? Appparently, if you whip up canned chickpea juice with a tablespoon of sugar and a few drops of an acid, you will end up with an airy foam, very similar to beaten egg whites. This is currently taking the French vegan blogosphere by storm, with chocolate mousse recipes popping all over the place. I haven't tried it yet; apparently the taste is neutral. Sounds a lot easier than extracting flax goo, too.

I think I saw this on instagram. It sounds pretty cool and since I am eating canned chickpeas twice a week I am going to try this soon!

wow. this is amazing!

(also, google translate is hilarious. the photo description says this: "white in snow juice a box of chickpea")

hey this is cool! i wonder if it would work with the juice from cooked chickpeas - i've had it gel up pretty good if you leave the chickpeas in the cooking water in the fridge for a few days.

ooh! postnothing, let us know. (that way you'd be avoiding the BPA. which i suppose is higher in the juice than it is in the peas, but i'm not sure. just a hypothesis.)

I read on the Internet that yes, you can also use the cooking water from dry chickpeas.

Sounds like an intriguing idea. A pity I cooked all the chickpeas for the week this morning and threw away the water :(
Well, next scheduled chickpea cooking :)

That makes sense because of the foam that develops during cooking. Does anybody know if that foam is starch or protein?

That stuff is amazing. I wasn't super successful with macaroons yet, but it works for marshmallow fluff and meringues. And you only need about 1/2 cup of brine to make a ton.

Here is the fluff I made:

And here are some perfectly crispy meringues.

I used these two links, but found the recipes needed some modifications. (I'll write a blog post about it soon.)

Okay, this looks wonderful. How is the taste? I might just go and buy an egg beater right now and give lemon meringue pie a shot.

aelle, you are going to have to translate that recipe for us! I get the ingredients list but what would they consider dark chocolate? Is that like solid dark chocolate (like chocolate chips)

I found this recipe a few days ago if anyone else is interested. Good explanation and pictures for lemon meringue pie.

So ingenious! I can't wait to make a hazelnut meringue and raspberry gateau - it's been years since I had one!!

This is so exciting!!!! Especially because I was just about to make hummus anyway. Not that I need an excuse to open up a can or cook up a pot of chick peas. And I already would have saved the liquid to use for boiling something in or added it to vegetable broth or something. But I'd rather use it for mouse or meringue.
Does anyone think chick pea water can be used as an emulsifier the way flax can? For example, could it be used instead of flax in Isa's mayo recipe if one was out of flax, allergic to flax, or under attack by flax eating zombies?

I don't know the recipe, but I'm pretty sure almost anything can be used to emulsify/stabilise mayo. Traditional aioli doesn't have egg in it, the garlic does the job, and I use soy milk and ground cashews when I make mayo, so I don't see why bean juice couldn't also work. I think I recall Serious Eats doing a mayo using eggplant as the stabiliser too. Which is all very handy in the event of a flax-eating zombie apocalypse.

Doesn't the chickpea goo give the mousse a beany, salty taste?
