I am a sucker for any repurposing. I am not vegan so I can’t use that as an excuse.
Anyway I kept seeing chickpea liquid being whipped into meringue instead of fodder for the waste bin.
I wanted to try it with cocoa and see if it tasted like a pudding. I added 3 teaspoon of cocoa and 1/4 cup powdered sugar with a little Cream of Tatar. Armed with my trusty hand mixer I was about to give up. After about 15 minutes this is what I had.
I slung that stuff into some martini glasses. Ha!
After about an hour in the refrigerator it had deflated a little bit.
I have to admit it didn’t taste like pudding. More like a chocolate meringue with a touch of heartburn. Yes, I got heartburn from the stuff. Pudding would never do that to me.
Trash or something to be desired?
I guess it depends on individual preferences.
