Green goddess aquafaba dressing

This creamy classic gets a vegan makeover.

This version of green goddess gets its creaminess from a surprising source: the liquid in canned chickpeas, also known as aquafaba liquid. Lightened by acidic lemon juice and bright herbs, it makes a refreshing dip or salad dressing for both parents and kids, says Marissa Lippert, RD, a New York City-based nutritionist and owner of Nourish Baby, a food-delivery service for parents and newborns. Use it to introduce young ones to a condiment that isn’t ketchup.
