These are like your classic Italian bakery cookies, full of sweet, nutty flavor, with a crunchy exterior yielding to dreamily chewy interior. The secret ingredient is aquafaba. Huh? The Latin translation is bean water. Chickpea cooking liquid is a brilliant vegan egg replacer and a great use of a byproduct we usually throw out. Vegan chefs have been using this viscous bean brine to whip up frothy meringues and airy mousses. These quick and easy cookies contain only a scant amount of aquafaba and taste not at all of bean.

Jewish Veg member Fran Costigan, known for good reason as the "Queen of Vegan Desserts", created this wonderful vegan macaroon recipe that's perfect for your Plant-Based Passover. Replacing the egg whites found in every macaroon recipe proved a tough puzzle to solve. One afternoon, wondering what to do with the bowl of white chia gel she was whisking, Fran thought, "Egg whites!".
She's made a delicious, preservative-free version of that canned cookie that appears on virtually every Seder table.

Portobello mushrooms have a wonderful meaty flavor and are nice and big, so you feel like you are having a juicy piece of meat. Well maybe not exactly, but it is pretty close.
