    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place chocolate in TM bowl+ MC, 10 seconds, speed 5.
  2. Scrape into bowl and set aside. Allow to cool.
  3. Wash and dry TM bowl.
  4. Insert butterly.
  5. Pour aquafaba in TM bowl. +MC, whisk 2min (approx), speed 4. You will hear the sound change when the aquafaba is ready. It will form stiff peaks.
  6. On speed 4, gradually add the sugar and allow to disolve. This will take about 4 minutes.
  7. Transfer to bowl. Once chocolate is cool gradually fold into the aquafaba until consistently mixed. It will deflate a little.
  8. Pour into ramekins and refrigerate for minimum 3 hours.

The original non-TM recipe is here https://www.lazycatkitchen.com/fluffy-vegan-chocolate-mousse/

I prefer to melt my chocolate over the stove (metal bowl over simering water). Mainly because I just cool it in the metal bowl over cold water. Just saves washing the bowl.

To ensure this is dairy free, make sure your dark chocolate does not contain dairy. I like Callebaut Belgian Dark Chocolate.

The sugar is just to remove the chickpeay flavour from the meringue. You may wish to adjust the quantity to your own taste.

Unlike egg, aquafaba cannot be overwhipped. Means if you go too long no harm done. Can't wait to try using it in macarons and meringue.

    I assume you mean 10 mins not 10 seconds for chocolate in the 1st step?
