Vegan Aquafaba French Macarons For High Tea Afternoons

Vegan Aquafaba French Macarons For High Tea Afternoons

Just when my daughter Emi thought her macaron days were over after going vegan, Mummy investigated and took different elements from a few recipes and nailed it! I have been reading about aquafaba, the brine from chickpeas, for a while now, and that it can replace egg whites. So into the kitchen we went, though admittedly I was totally going into this with no hope of these macarons being edible.

I experiment a lot in the kitchen but never with baking as it always goes wrong as I am not a natural baker. Well, let me tell you these are amazing! I was in shock! These classic yet plant-based macarons are crispy on the outside and a little chewy in the center, just as a macaron should be. And you cannot taste a trace of chickpea brine. This is a whole new arena for me.

Feel free to experiment with the food colorings or natural plant pigments for a range of hues.
