Vegan Meringues

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"These vegan meringues use the liquid from a tin of chickpeas as the substitute for egg whites - genius! Use these vegan meringues wherever you would use egg white meringue such as summer fruit pavlova and Eton mess."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 210 degrees F (100 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  2. Drain chickpeas, reserving 1/2 cup liquid from the can. Save the chickpeas for another use. Pour chickpea liquid into a bowl and add the cream of tartar. Beat mixture using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, as you continually beat until glossy peaks form, about 20 minutes; beat in vanilla extract until well incorporated.
  3. Spoon mixture into a piping bag and pipe into small circles, about 1 inch in diameter, onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until meringues are firm and come away easily from the parchment paper, about 90 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, at least 15 minutes.

This is the first time I’ve made meringues EVER so I wasn’t skilled at all in this case. The recipe is pretty foolproof: drain the chickpea liquid, add the sugar and cream of tartar, and whip it...

They were not bad, but not great either. They didn't really have the chewy inner texture that I remember meringues having. I used no salt chickpeas, however the meringue still very much tasted l...

Just like egg white meringues!!! I followed the directions exactly and got amazing results! These turned out perfectly. Vegans and meat eaters alike loved them. I added small chocolate chunks ...
