Vegan mayo made with aquafaba

IMG-0927

Aquafaba is this new vegan thing, that everyone is going crazy about. It is the water from the canned chickpeas, that if you beat long enough with a mixer it will turn into an airy and fluffy mix just like egg whites. It has no taste whatsoever and that is pretty amazing too. I decided to try it in a mayo recipe, partly because I didn`t believe it will work. But it did and the result was just as good as any other mayo. It`s lighter and runnier, but it gets firm when you store it in the fridge and it spreads beautifully on a bun šŸ™‚
