Vegan chocolate mousse with tahini

Did you just make yourself a chickpea salad and want to process the chickpea water? Very sustainable from you! Therefore, you get from me also directly the recipe for vegan chocolate mousse with tahini. You are skeptical? I was at the beginning. I was a little afraid that the chocolate cream would somehow taste like chickpeas - absolutely unfounded. The refined mousse tastes wonderfully chocolaty and a bit like sesame mousse.

Chocolate cream with aquafaba

Canned chickpea water is an excellent substitute for egg whites. You can whip the aquafaba, as it's also called (aqua = water, faba = bean), really well with a squeeze of lemon juice or a pinch of baking powder. It takes a bit of time, but is still quick to prepare and is perfect for vegan chocolate mousse. The whipped aquafaba makes the cream especially airy and light.

Chocolate mousse with a difference

This recipe wouldn't be on this blog if a few Levantine ingredients hadn't integrated themselves. I totally like to spice up or modify classics. There are no chickpeas in the chocolate mousse, but there is the water. There are also fine coconut flakes, which people in Lebanon like to use to spice up desserts. And of course the secret star of this chocolaty dessert: tahini. Because the tart, nutty note rounds off the vegan chocolate mousse perfectly.

Why not start your own experiment right away and make this wonderful vegan chocolate mousse with creamy tahini - you'll enjoy every spoonful.
