Dumplings are an extra sweet way to end a meal, with everyone getting their own individual dessert. Using a dairy-free buttery dough, the cooked brown sugar-apple mixture is tucked inside and baked until just tender. Serve warm with a scoop of vegan-friendly vanilla ice cream.

Don't let the word "foam" throw you off. This recipe utilizes aquafaba (the liquid from cooked chickpeas) to create an egg-free meringue atop this spiced apple pie. If using canned chickpeas, be sure to buy a no-salt-added variety to avoid an overly salty dessert.
