After a long long time I finally got the hang of making silky smooth meringue with ‘Aqua Faba’. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this term, don’t worry, it isn’t some high funda stuff. Aqua faba is simply chickpea brine or the water left after we pressure cook kabuli channa. Who knew that this simple ingredient can substitute egg whites in nearly any recipe.
Well whisking the chickpea brine into the perfect meringue this morning was such an amazing feeling. I just had to use it in a special bake. I thought of Lemon Meringue Pie. But since I ran out of lemons, sweet lime it is !
So here’s my egg free Sweet lime meringue pie with a whole wheat pie crust, filled with egg less silky smooth sweet lime curd and topped with a melt in the mouth vegan meringue. Makes one hell of a dessert I must say.
Hope you enjoy this sweet and tangy dessert.
