Butter made out of chickpeas? Yep, it’s a thing! Plant-based butter called “Faba Butter,” made using aquafaba, the water that is leftover when cooking chickpeas. No Palm oil either!
Aquafaba can act as an emulsifier, leavening agent, and foaming agent because it has properties similar to those of egg whites. Together with water, coconut oil, and plant-based liquid oil, aquafaba helps create a rich, creamy product that cooks, tastes, bakes and spreads just like traditional butter.
