Aquafaba

If you take chickpea brine, and beat it with an electric whisk, you get stiff peaks. Just as you would if you beat egg whites. With this light fluffy phenomenon you can make vegan meringue, vegan mayonaise and this decadent vegan mousse! It sounds weird—believe me, I had reservations—but it works, and it works wonderfully.
