    In batters and baking you can use a chickpea flour mix. If you want meringue then look at aquafaba. Precise quantities of the chickpea/water vary but take a look at the link in the berry muffin thread and you'll see she uses chickpea.

    I've used it as a tempura base for seitan pieces and it worked brilliantly.

    The jus-roll puff pastry wrapped around a Linda McCartney vegan sausage makes the most amazing sausage roll...

    I found the vegan meringue recipe and my bf's family was so surprised "how can you make meringue without eggs?" Chick pea flour eh? that's interesting, is it also quite low carb as well? I don't know much about chick pea flour in comparison to almond flour.

    It's not as low as almond flour for carbs but it's less greasy in the cooking.

    But in the muffin recipe I made 9 muffins, proper muffin size, and used on 2tbs of chickpea because it was acting as an egg substitute rather than as a flour.

    I used the use the LM cocktail sausages and make little ones for Christmas; and big ones for packed lunches. They tasted very similar to traditional meaty ones.
