What if I told you this delicious looking meringue contained no egg white whatsoever??
This vegan meringue is made using aquafaba. Aquafaba means bean water it’s the viscous liquid leftover in your cans of beans. Appetizing huh?! The best beans to use are garbanzo beans due to their neutral flavor. When I discovered the magic of aquafaba, I had to try it for myself.
The kids and I made a batch and it turned out so well on the first try. The aquafaba acts exactly like egg white. It whips up into hard peaks with the addition of cream of tartar.
You could create really delicious flavors with the addition of cocoa powder, coffee, lemon zest, flavor extracts, or chocolate chips.
