10 Delicious Things You Can Make With Aquafaba, from Scrambled “Eggs” to Brownies

The word “aquafaba” is popping up more and more in the vegan community and beyond. So, what exactly is it? Basically, it’s the liquid that comes in a can of chickpeas or beans you usually dump down the sink and don’t think twice about. That’s about to change, though, because this stuff changes the cooking game for vegans, basically acting like an egg-like substance that can do everything from foam and bind to thicken.

Here are 10 tasty ways to use the magical liquid.

1. Vegan Butter

If you’d prefer making your own vegan butter rather than buying it from the store, all it takes is some aquafaba. By combining the liquid with a couple different oils, you’ll have a spreadable mix that will last for about 7 days in the fridge.

5. Scrambled “Eggs”

Since aquafaba subs in for eggs in so many dishes, it’s no surprise it can whipped up into an egg dish itself, right? Tofu scrambles are super tasty, but the fluffy mixture you’ll get from scrambling aquafaba into tofu is unbeatable. Just look at this dish.
