Mayonnaise is such a useful condiment to keep in the fridge and as enthusiastic consumers of chickpea cans and cartons it was about time that we started making our own mayo using aquafaba. You see aquafaba is the liquid that you drain from the chickpeas as they come out of the can/carton. This liquid is very versatile and is great in baking as it whips up similar to the way egg whites do. It also works great as a base for your home made mayonnaise, all you need to do is add a few simple ingredients and whizz with a stick blender. Easy as!

PS. You can use it to make this yummy vegan “tuna” mayo!
