Refrigerate the liquid left over from canned or home cooked white beans and chickpeas. This bean juice is called Aquafaba. It’s delicious as a mayo. Adjust the salt, vinegar and sweetener to your taste.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Yields: 1-1/2 cups
Author: Chef Linda | Esther's Kitchen

6 Tablespoons refrigerated bean juice (Aquafaba ) from 15 oz can of butter beans, great Northern beans, chickpea/garbanzo, or cannellini beans
1/2 teaspoon salt * 1 teaspoon golden light agave or maple syrup
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup organic sunflower oil or other neutral oil

1. Add the cold bean juice in a tall jar. Use a hand immersion blender to blend the bean juice on high until it turns opaque white and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
2. Add in the salt, sweetener, and vinegar. Continue to blend with the immersion blender and slowly start drizzling the oil in stages while you blend. The mayo will begin to thicken in about 1 minute. Blend for 1 more minute on high.
3. Transfer the Aquafaba Mayo in a sealed jar. Refrigerate up to 1-2 weeks.

1. The mayo will thicken more in the refrigerator.
2. Remove any bean bits from the Aquafaba.
3. Electric hand mixers can be used if you don’t have a hand immersion blender. The blending container works best if it’s a jar and not a bowl. Use the whisk attachment of the electric mixer or one beater.
4. If you wish to have an eggy taste to your mayo, add a pinch of Kala Namak salt at serving. The sulphuric aroma will dissipate and will not stay in your mayo for an extended period. Use regular sea salt or pink Himalayan salt in the recipe.
