These out-of-this-world meringues are fun, easy to make and great for parties! You won’t need to buy any fancy egg replacers, as this recipe uses the liquid from a can of chickpeas (known as aquafaba).
You can adjust the colours as you wish, or even use several at once. We went for a midnight blue colour, but pinks and purples would also work well. Read on for full directions.
- 170g of chickpea liquid (one can’s worth should be enough)
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartare
- 340g icing sugar
- Food colouring
- Whisk chickpea liquid in a large bowl until white and fluffy (an electric whisk is best!)
- Add cream of tartare and continue whisking.
- Add icing sugar, one tablespoon at a time, whisking continuously.
- Continue whisking until mixture is thick and fluffy.
- Turn a piping bag inside out, and paint one or two stripes of food colouring (in colours of your choice) from the pointy end of the bag to around halfway up.
- Turn bag inside out again and fill carefully with meringue mixture.
- Pipe meringues onto a lined baking tray. Don’t worry if they’re different shapes and sizes – every galaxy is different!
- Bake for 45 – 50 minutes at 100 degrees celsius.
- Remove from the oven and enjoy!
