Eggless Meringue Kisses

Eggless Meringue Kisses

These eggless meringue kisses are made with aquafaba (chickpea water) and flavored with vanilla extract. They are as easy to make as the regular ones, have a nice crunchy texture and melt in your mouth.

To get white and crispy meringues, you have to bake them in the oven at a very low temperature for a couple of hours. I usually let them dry overnight in the turned off oven. But I would at least recommend to allow to cool down completely in the oven before putting in an airtight container.

Meringues are a great way to decorate your desserts, you can make them in a lot of different shapes, add food coloring, sprinkles, silvered almonds. If you’re looking for some ideas, check out my french meringues post.

You opened a can of chickpea just to use the water and don’t know what to do with the legumes? Make a fall quinoa bowl or a tagine!
