Vegan Chocolate Mousse - aquafaba magic.

Continuing the exploration into vegan recipes, I chanced upon this http://www.crazyvegankitchen.com/vegan-chocolate-mousse-made-with-aquafaba-chickpea-brine/

What I like about this recipe is that it doesn't call for strange and outlandish ingredients featuring in many other vegan recipes, all of this was easily sourced at the local supermarket. Here is my adapted version

130ml aquafaba
3 tablespoons icing sugar
1 capful vanilla essence
6 oz dark chocolate (Green and Blacks is dairy free)
Pinch of salt

1. Whisk aquafaba until it forms soft peaks, then add the icing sugar. Whisk until incorporated.

2. Melt the dark chocolate over a bain marie or very carefully in the microwave. Use the vanilla extract to help slacken, then add to aquafaba mix. Continue mixing until fully incorporated, then taste test. The chocolate I used was dark and quite bitter, so I added a pinch of salt and extra sugar to balance out this flavour, so you may want to source less bitter chocolate. When satisfied, pour into glasses, chill and serve.

It was light and fluffy, I do not think it could hold its shape by itself. I think this could be adapted to include agar-agar for a firmer set.

Fruit couli could be included to add an extra dimension of flavour
