I know I have posted briefly about my desire to experiment with aquafaba before and while I have not had the chance to play just yet I've been making a list of recipes that I've wanted to tackle using aquafaba and I thought it would be fun to share with you!
I'm intimidated by the process but I really want to try to make some macarons. I know they require time and patience and I lack both but I'm determined to make this work! When I posted this picture on my Instagram I received a comment saying that pistachio macarons are the best so I'm thinking about starting off with that flavor!
No this is not a vegan version but I had to show it to you because I really need to veganize it and try it! Apparently Disney makes a freaking macaron ice cream sandwich. What genius came up with this?! I am definitely going to be trying this and I really wish Disney had a vegan version so I could just be lazy and try it there (did I mention I'm almost certain I'm going to be spending my birthday at Magic Kingdom this year?!) but sadly like with most things I have to make it myself.
I actually really used to like Angel Food Cake. I have a thing about textures and I LOVE the texture of angel food cake. I've never made it before but I think it would definitely be a fun thing to try and make with aquafaba. I think it would be delicious with my macerated strawberries and some ice cream. I just need to get the angel food cake pan for this.
These cookies are one of my favorite all time cookies and I miss them. These are also time consuming and a little complicated to make and I don't know when I'll actually attempt them but I definitely want to give them a try! I LOVE the almond flavor and they are just so beautiful. The picture above is from The Veg Life and that is a vegan recipe for these cookies. I am going to have to take a closer look at it and I'll probably tweak it a bit for my own preferences but that's probably down the road because I'm already intimidated by it, ha!
I've always thought that Pavlovas are a beautiful dessert and I think it would be really fun to make them. They are perfect in the summer with the lightness of the meringue and the beautiful fresh berries to complement it. This is another recipe I can probably tackle sooner rather than later because it is less intimidating than the others ;)
These are probably my top recipes that I'm looking forward to trying using aquafaba! There are probably more but I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself. Hopefully I will push through the intimidation with some of the more complicated recipes because it would be really great to be able to make some of my old favorites.
Have you tried using aquafaba to bake? What have you made? What recipes would you like to try?
I'll be back to share some meals with you on Sunday! Happy Friday and I hope you enjoy your weekend <3
