Chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate. This super easy chocolate mousse will satisfy all chocolate cravings!
In the world of plant-based recipes, chickpeas and beans absolutely rule. They are a great source of protein, you can find them anywhere, they're super easy to cook, cheap, delicious and you can make so many different things from them. Gods, bless pods!
Now, if you've never heard of aquafaba then let me give you a quick tour of this magical liquid. Aquafaba is found in canned chickpeas. I bet that every time you've opened a can, you've smelled it and instantly dumped the liquid out. Well, that very liquid can make vegan dreams come true! Meringue, nougat, fudge, ice-cream and marshmallow fluff, all can be made vegan with this miracle water.
This recipe makes use of aquafaba to turn chocolate into mousse, trust me it tastes nothing like chickpeas!
