Today, I would like to start my post with a little appreciation for someone very special in my life — My Mommy.

“My mother, is the bone of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot imagine a life without her.” -Kristin Hannah

I wasn’t keeping well since Monday, so I wasn’t blogging actively. I am still not fully recovered yet, but just I wanted to publish this post before the weekend.

Why, you may ask?

  1. It’s because I have shot and edited this video for this mousse recipe last week already. Because I wanted to share this one for the Mother’s Day.
  2. Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and I was running out of time. And what’s the use if I post it after the Mother’s Day.
  3. My mom is so affectionate towards chickpeas, and I believed she would really cherish this chocolate mousse. Even though my Mom is in India and not here with me on this Mother’s Day, I am still intending to share this easy peasy recipe with her.
  4. I have been sleeping mostly all the time since a couple of days, and so finally gotten so tired of sleeping. Thus, I wanted to do something productive which I could do while relaxing on the bed, making sure that I don’t exhaust myself. So, sharing this post sounded like the idea ticking off all these checkboxes.

My plans:

Talking about the Mother’s Day, it’s been many years now since my Mom and I have not been together on Mother’s Day. I know my Mom misses me so much and she wants to see me in person — since she keeps talking about it all the time over the phone. I am not sure if I would be able to meet her on Mother’s Day itself, but we can surely celebrate it when we’ll meet next time.

So I am presuming that I should surprize her by wrapping myself in a gift box next time I visit India. I just want to see the expressions on her face. And that day we will celebrate our very own Mother’s Day. I am sure she would unquestionably love this approach. What do you think? 🙂

Let’s talk about my today’s recipe — ‘Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse’:

This Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse is made with only 4 ingredients. Plus, this is Vegan And Glutenfree.

I am sure most of you know already about what Aquafaba is. But here’s a little intro for those who don’t know about it. Aquafaba is the thick liquid you get from canned or home cooked chickpeas. I always use up that liquid in my cooking, but I have also seen many people who throw away that protein packed liquid. So, a word of advice, don’t throw it away the next time, because this Aquafaba can make a heavenly, vegan and gluten-free chocolate mousse too.

    This is just perfect:

    I was fascinated when I first heard Aquafaba last year. It sounded so fancy. I didn’t know the fact that the water from the canned or cooked chickpeas can be whipped up just like egg whites. I was so amused when I first saw that.

    Aquafaba whips up as easily as the egg whites and you won’t be able to find a difference. And you can easily get the stiff peaks which are needed for the light and airy mousse. You can make mousse, meringues and many more delights using whipped aquafaba. After a good whisk, that water really resembles meringue.

    You can make it in only few minutes:

    I LOVE this chocolate dessert:

    This chocolate mousse is ready in less than 20 minutes, and then it goes in the refrigerator for chilling. Once chilled and set, the mousse is everything you would want in a quick and easy chocolate dessert. It is bursting with an intense chocolate flavor, a light, airy and melt-in-mouth silky smooth texture. I dusted mousse with some unsweetened cocoa powder and chocolate shavings. But it would also be great with some fresh berries or oranges on top.

    INGREDIENTS

    For Aquafaba //
    • Chickpeas - 1 1/2 cup
    • Water
    For Vegan chocolate Mousse //
    • Aquafaba - 1 1/2 cup
    • Dark chocolate, roughly chopped - 200g (I used vegan dark chocolates Ñ a combo of 84% and 70% cocoa)
    • Icing sugar - 5 tbsp (You can also use maple syrup or agave syrup)
    • vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
    • Freshly brewed coffee - 2 tbsp (or 1 tbsp instant coffee diluted with 2 tbsp water)

    2. Drain and wash it again. Add it to the pressure cooker along with 4 cups of water and pressure cook it on high for 8-10 whistles. (If you cook it longer will result in stronger aquafaba and the softer chickpeas.)
