Today, we are going to make some of my favorite dips. Yes! My all dips will be vegetarian. You can try without any hesitation. So, let’s start. First, we will prepare one ingredient Aquafaba. This Aquafaba is a must for all the dips.
Aquafaba is a liquid left over from cooked chickpeas. You can get it in two ways:
1) separate a can of chickpeas and reserve the liquid. Or,
2) Cook your chickpeas and reserve the leftover liquid. Making it at home is more time-consuming. SO, please try to buy canned chickpeas for ease!
To make Aquafaba, blend chickpeas water with cream of tartar or lemon juice. Cream of tartar substitute is Lemon juice. If you are using 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar, then use one teaspoon of lemon juice. Now mixing will be much easy and faster. It will help to make it firm and thicken.
You can use Aquafada in Vegan Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies, Vegan Mayo, and can add to recipes as a whipped egg white substitute, such as these Best Vegan Gluten-Free Waffles! With Aquafadas, we can make delicious and versatile plant-based spread perfect for sandwiches, sauces, dressings, and more!
- Aquafaba:1/4 cup
- Ground mustard: 1/4 tsp
- Sea salt: 1/4 tsp
- Apple cider vinegar: 1 1/2 tsp
- Brown rice syrup or Maple syrup: 1-3 tsp
- Sunflower oil: 3/4-1 cup
Add Aquafaba to a tall glass jar along with ground mustard, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, and brown rice syrup. Blend on the high-speed blender for best results. Now slowly add oil into it and if you find it is looking too thin, then add more oil. The more Sunflower oil you add, the creamier, thicker, and compacter the texture will become. You shouldn’t need more than the recommended amount of Sunflower oil. Use it immediately or transfer to an airtight container in the refrigerator until cold – about 4 hours. It will thicken even more in the cooling if some leftovers store in the fridge for up to two weeks. If you find a change in the consistency, then it is a spoiled one, do not use it.
Now we are going to add some flavor to our dip’s. Let’s start:
For Ginger Mayo:
- Ginger: 1 inch
- Cumin powder: 1/2 tsp
- Black pepper: 1/4 tsp
For Garlic Mayo:
- Garlic (finely chopped): 1 tsp
