Egg-free chocolate mousse

05/20/16

This typical French airy and ‘chocolatey’ mix that makes you go nuts and guess what ? Egg-free ! And the crazy thing in all this: maybe the mousse is not as firm as the classic one, but I really bet you will see nor taste the difference.

The secret? Some whisked chickpea water mixed with chocolate… Ta da!

Serves 4 people.

Ingredients:

  • the juice of one chickpea can (400g)
  • 120g black chocolate melted at ‘bain-marie’
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 15g cane sugar (optional)
  • 5 lemon juice drops (optional)

Recette:

  1. Whisk the chickpea water till you form peaks, slowly adding the salt and the lemon juice (the lemon juice is optional, it will give the mousse a slight lemon flavour. The lemon drops are supposed to help the mousse be more firm… I have not seen a real difference to be honest).  You can add sugar if you want, I personally, prefer a strong chocolate mousse rather than a too sweet one.
  2. Pour the chickpea mousse on top of the melted chocolate and slowly mix with a spatula
  3. Once you have an homogeneous mixture, pour it into some small bowls and leave those in the fridge for at least 2 hours

Enjoy !
