Aquafaba literally means bean water — the water that’s drained off neutral-colored beans like chickpeas, white beans and cannellini beans.

Vegans have had limited choices when it came to baked goods. The existing substitutes did not have the chemical properties of eggs which made them integral for binding and leavening. But now there is the perfect substitute, and it’s aquafaba. And it’s blown open the world of vegan baking.

This collection of recipes, however, is not only for vegans. It is great for anyone who has an allergy to dairy and eggs. It’s proof that you can go egg-free and still enjoy delicious recipes. You will never miss eggs again. The general rule of thumb is 3 tbsp of aquafaba equals one egg. The protein in aquafaba, when mixed with some sugar and a pinch of cream of tartar, perfectly simulates egg whites. Neutral in taste, you don’t have to worry about your dishes tasting beany.

All your breakfast and brunch favorites are here–from omelettes, French Toast and pancakes to scones and crepes. You’ll enjoy satisfying and sumptuous Vegan Shepherds Pie, Vegan Mac and Cheese or for lunch or dinner. And you can once again enjoy Alfredo Sauce over your pasta. And the meringue desserts are not to be missed — Fruit Pavlova and Sweet Potato Pie to Lemon Meringue Pie. Chocolate Chip Cookies, S’mores Bars, Snickerdoodles and Chocolate Ice Cream are perfect for those children’s birthday parties where allergies are now a prevailing concern.

Now you no longer have to live without the culinary wonders that eggs and egg whites produce. All you need to do is open up a can of chickpeas, drain the water and you’re ready to go.

Travel Vlog: Sunday in Paris

I arrived in Paris on Saturday night, an beyond walking down to the Seine to see the Eiffel Tower and people-watch, we didn’t do much.

So Sunday was my first real day in Paris, and we packed a lot in.

First off, when I’m at home in Vancouver, my favorite thing to do on a Sunday is to go the Farmer’s Market. So, we went to the Farmer’s Market in Paris! We had planned to go to the Bastille one, but ended up going to our local one instead, and it was amazing.

We then explored the city by bike, riding up to the Canal St Martin and chilling out with the locals at the park.

We finished the day by riding our bikes back down to the Seine, and picking up a bottle of rose on the way. Wine, sunset, music… it was perfect.

Vegan Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse: Colab with Two Market Girls

Last month, I had to go to Toronto to speak at a conference. I had discovered the Two Market Girls’ YouTube channel a while back, and got in contact with them. Like me, they were doing vegan recipes in Canada, and I thought it would be fun to meet with them and collaborate.

So, while in Toronto, I tracked them down, and we made this video together. What a blast!

If you’ve not already subscribed to Cat & Dev’s channel, you should. They do some serious vegan foodporn.
