Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 100ºCInto a very clean and dry Thermomix bowl, place sugar and mill 10 sec/speed 9. Set aside. Clean and thoroughly dry bowl again

  2. Insert Butterfly, add aqua faba, and cream of tartar into mixing bowl and beat for 4-5 mins/50ºC/speed 3.5 with MC removed until strong peaks form

  3. With blades rotating on speed 2, add sugar 1 tsp at a time over a period of 2-3 minutes

  4. Add xantham gum and vinegar and continue to beat for  30 sec/speed 2

  5. Place the mixture into a piping bag with your favourite nozzle to create tears or stars and pipe shapes onto baking paper, or pipe into several large discs for a Pavlova Torte.(Optional: use a blow torch to colour slightly before drying in oven )

  6. Place in 100ºC pre-heated oven. (So you are drying them out rather than baking). Insert a wooden spoon into the oven door or keep it slightly ajar so the moisture escapes and the meringues dry out better. It can take 2 to 5 hours depending on the size of the meringues

  7. Store in an airtight container.  They will last for up to a week


Accessories you need



1. Completely clean bowl first : 250ml vinegar plus 750 ml water Heat 10mins / 100ºC / speed 1. Drain and dry.2. Aqua faba - the new wonder ingredient for vegan chefs!Aqua Faba is the cooking liquid drained from a can of legumes eg, chickpeas. If you cook your own chickpeas save the cooking liquid - it may need to be reduced to a more viscous consistency before use. eg Heat the liquid 5+ mins/Varoma/speed 1 to reduce and cool before using for meringueFor more ways to use aqua faba in cruelty-free plant-based cooking, checkout this FB Group//www.facebook.com/groups/VeganMeringueThere are lots of ideas in the Files

    I've made these twice and the texture and appearance are great. The flavour of vinegar comes through strongly though. Next time I might try 1tsp rather than 1 tbsp.

    Wow! These are amazing. I can't believe how similar they are to an egg white meringue. The recipe is well written and easy to follow. Thankyou so much for posting this.
