Aquafaba is the liquid that is left behind when you drain a can of chickpeas. Get 1 can of chickpeas (15 oz can) and drain the chickpeas reserving enough of the liquid. Use the chickpeas for other recipe.

You can use the liquid from cooking chickepas at home. You need to strain it very well. Use it at room temperature.
