  • Add the chickpeas in a large bowl and cover them with plenty of water. Allow 8 hours for them to soak. Your bowl should be large enough as the chickpeas will double in volume.
  • After 8 hours, drain the chickpeas and discard the water.
  • Transfer the chickpeas into a pot and add 1 liter of water. Optionally, add another 500 g water in case the chickpeas are not completely covered.
  • Place the pot over high heat until the water starts boiling. Then, lower the heat to medium-low and with a slotted spoon, skim off the foam.
  • Simmer for 45-55 minutes until the chickpeas are tender.
  • Place a colander over a clean pot.
  • Drain the chickpeas and keep the water. Set the chickpeas aside, inside a bowl.
  • Transfer the pot with the water over medium heat and boil for 15 minutes until about half of the water is evaporated.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let the aquafaba cool well. As it will be cooling down, it will look more and more like egg white, in texture.
  • Optionally, if you beat the aquafaba in the mixer with the whisk attachment at high speed for 4-5 minutes, you will have a thick vegan meringue.
  • You can store the aquafaba in your refrigerator for 3 days, inside a bowl with a lid.
  • You can use the boiled chickpeas to make hummus, a salad, or any other recipe that you like.
