Vegan Candied Rose Petals
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: a small handful of candied rose petals
  • a small handful dried edible rose petals or however many you would like to candy
  • about 3 tablespoons aquafaba from chickpeas with the consistency of egg whites
  • granulated sugar
  1. Lay out your rose petals in a single layer on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  2. Use a small brush to put some aquafaba on the upper side of the rose petals and sprinkle enough granulated sugar on top to cover it completely. Since the aquafaba dries quite quickly, I would recommend brushing a maximum of 10 petals each time before sprinkling the sugar on top. Depending on the climate and humidity in you house, it could be useful to help the rose petals dry in an oven on it's lowest setting, preferably with the door half open.
  3. When the aquafaba has dried, you can turn over the rose petals to repeat the same process for the other side of the petals.
  4. Store in an airtight jar.
