Meringue is made from egg whites similar to pavlova. Recipes can be large and filled, used on the top of other ingredients or small bite size versions.
These are the most elemental meringue only combining egg whites and sugar yet they make a great sweet treat or garnish to a larger dessert.
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.
I was so pleased to discover that my wonderful Lemon Meringue Pie recipe that took years to perfect is just as good, if not better, when made lactose and gluten free! For the intolerant among us enjoy this delicious dessert... It's best served cold the next day but I often can't wait and love a slice when it's still warm and fresh out of the oven... ENJOY!
This is a fun recipe to follow, because Grandma makes it sweet and simple. This pie is thickened with cornflour in addition to egg yolks and contains no milk.
Meringue can be tricky and the results uncertain. If this is your experience, you have to try this recipe. It may seem a little more work but it is worth it for the result!
