Chickpea Water as an Egg Substitute!

What came first, the chickpea or the egg? :o)

One of my daughters told me about using chickpea water as an egg substitute, and it works quite well! A great alternative to eggs if you’re vegan, or if you have allergies or sensitivities to eggs.

Apparently the water from certain other canned legumes works too, but I haven’t tried any others yet.

So, next time you open a can of chickpeas to make a yummy recipe … like my Chickpea and Artichoke Salad, or my Hummus, or my One-Pot Winner-Winner Coconutty Chicken Curry Dinner , save that chickpea water and try it out as an egg substitute, perhaps in some baking … like my Power-Packed Cookies!

Watch the video below to see how you can make use out of the water from canned chickpeas!
