Putting the fab in Aquafaba. Got chickpeas? Love mayo? Then you’ll love Chef James’ zero waste mayo recipe.
Don’t chuck your aquafaba (the fancy word for chickpea water) down the sink – save it and grab yourself a blender. We’ll whizz up the creamiest vegan-friendly mayo together.
What you need…
- 160ml aquafaba
(1 tin’s worth of leftover chickpea water)
- 50ml apple cider vinegar (sulphites)
- 25ml maple syrup
- 30g dijon mustard (mustard)
- 500ml oil
(Allergens in bold)
How to make it…
1. Add everything to your blender except your oil.
2. Start blending, and slowly add the oil.
3. Blend until firm. It keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days.
TIP: Try stirring through pesto, harissa or even fresh herbs and diced capers for a twist.
