Stop Throwing Out Chickpea Water! Here's Proof That It's Magical

You've probably been throwing out an insanely versatile ingredient your whole life, but that ends now! Aquafaba, aka the viscous cooking water from chickpeas, is the latest craze on Pinterest for its ability to mimic egg whites.

Allow these recipes to prove to you just how truly magical aquafaba is.
