Magic Egg-Free Meringues

2:25 h

Would you believe it... we can make egg free meringues?? This is EXCELLENT news for us as we love a vegan dessert and meringues were one thing we missed! Our friend Ellie (Kind State Of Mind) came into the kitchen to cook some food. When she told us she wanted to make meringues out of chickpea water we were like "errr, ok then". We watched her work her magic & we were pretty much flabbergasted to see & taste the final result. If you decide to make these at home, we're pretty sure you'll be flabbergasted too! This is a surprisingly easy vegan dessert recipe!
