This happened in my kitchen today! Isn’t that gorgeous? It’s vegan meringue!! Vegan bloggers worldwide are experimenting using canned chickpea brine and sugar, beating it together until it formed stiff peaks, and calling it meringue. To good to be true? I had to try for myself.

Chickpea brine is the liquid in a can of chickpeas. A hand mixer will work fine but may take longer. Enjoy!

  2. Holy $#!t! Talk about perfect timing, just reading this and made hummus earlier for vegan Mid-Eastern night and so had still had leftover chickpeas in brine and had to try this! I was curious to see if it worked with the brine from the dried chickpeas I cooked and it does, so don\’t have to use canned chickpeas either! Unfortunately, I didn\’t all the ingredients on hand to make a vegan lemon meringue pie tonight or I\’d be doing that right now too! Tomorrow though for sure…

    1. Sounds good, however I do have a comment (question). I currently live in the Middle east and indulge on and off in the wonderfully prepared Hummus that is freshly available almost everywhere. Now I read in one of my researches that you need to soak chick peas for at least 12 hours and change the soaking water several times before boiling in order to destroy the relatively high content of Phasin. My question regarding your recipe is if it is based on using the first soaking brine? and if so, what could you tell me about Phasin contents? Thanks a lot for your comment:)
