Matzah is simply unleavened bread. It is said to be one of the only foods the Israelites in Egypt were able to eat and take with them while escaping hastily from Pharaoh. In commemoration of that first Seder meal, and the haste in which the Israelites left Egypt, we eat matzah at the Seder and all through the holiday 

Aquafaba is the name of the liquid left from cooking any type of legumes. The most common use, is aquafaba made from chickpeas, although beans aquafaba is very nice to work with. In the vegan kitchen, it is used as an egg whites substitute. In this recipe, it is used to combine the ingredients and hold them while cooking. The liquid is a simple combination of protein, starches, and vegetable gum. the percentage of protein is 10 times lower than that of egg white. reducing the aquafaba on low heat for long times will increase the protein percentage.

Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
