  • 200 grams dried chickpeas
  • 2 liters water


  • Soak dried chickpeas in one liter (4 cups) of water for about 10 hours (you can leave them to soak overnight).
  • Discard soaking water and rinse the chickpeas.
  • Place chickpeas into a saucepan and cover with 1 liter (4 cups) of water.
  • Cover the saucepan with a lid and bring to the boil. Then decrease the heat to low-medium and simmer for 60 to 90 minutes (until chickpeas are tender).
  • Once the chickpeas are cooked, turn the heat off and leave them to cool down completely in their cooking water.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove chickpeas from the cooking water. And there you are : this chickpea cooking water is your aquafaba! You should get about ½ liter (2 cups) of aquafaba.
