Aquafaba, which is the liquid from cooking beans and other legumes (even peas and tofu!), used to be just a waste product until a few years ago. Since its properties were discovered, now we know it can be used to replace egg whites, whole eggs, and oil.

Mostly used as an egg replacer in sweet recipes, it can also be used to replace oil in dressings and air frying for savory recipes.

While knowledge of aquafaba has grown, so has the recipe collection across the world. I’ve made this huge list of quality vegan aquafaba recipes for you, and I’ll be adding more as I come across them. So expect this list to grow, too!
