No eggs required, and only two ingredients? Magic exists!
Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to go without.
In fact, there are literally thousands of drool-worthily decadent vegan recipes on offer if you’re considering making the switch to a cruelty-free diet after learning some of the unsettling truths about where your food comes from.
But while vegan cheeses, mock meats and even Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice-cream now abound, there are some things that are still really, really hard to do vegan. Meringues being one of them.
The almost purely egg-based desserts have been a head-scratcher for vegan chefs desperate to recreate the treat minus the eggs…until now. This genius two-ingredient recipe thanks to the brilliant baking legends at Spoon is almost too easy, and you’ll be completely blown away by what the secret egg-replacing ingredient is…
What you need:
1/2 cup liquid from 1 can chickpeas
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract, if desired
How it’s done:
1. Pour chickpea liquid into large glass bowl. Whip the liquid up using a hand or electric beater until stiff peaks form; it may take up to 10 minutes, so be patient.
2. Add in the sugar and vanilla. Whisk a little more, until peaks are stiff again.
3. Use a piping bag to transfer mixture onto a baking sheet in small cookies and dry out in 230F/110C oven forBake for 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 hours, until meringues appear crisp, then allow to cool down in a warm oven for one more hour before decorating with desired garnishes like fresh fruit and whipped coconut cream and greedily devouring.
