How to Make Vegan Meringue With Chickpea Brine

How to Make Vegan Meringue with Chickpea Brine (otherwise known as Aqua Faba)

Since I’m highly sensitive to eggs and dairy, I have always used a lot of coconut cream in my recipes for a whipped topping (like with my Ice Box Cake and Dulce De Leche Chocolate Cashew Pie).  But when I was making a key lime pie recently, a friend mentioned using aqua faba (chickpea brine) to make a meringue instead. You cannot tell the difference between using this vegan chickpea brine meringue and a meringue made with eggs! I know this because I served the pie to my non-vegan friends, and they were shocked when I told them that it was made of chickpea brine! Plus, it’s easy too.

You just combine the ingredients and whip for 5 minutes.
