meringue magic

Vegan blueberry meringue pie 2 HOURS + COOLING + CHILLING | MAKES 8 SERVINGS A LITTLE EFFORT | This is twist on the classic lemon meringue pie, which still delivers a zesty punch, balanced with flaky, buttery pastry and smooth, creamy aquafaba meringue. If you’re new to aquafaba (the soaking water from a tin of unsalted chickpeas), keep in mind that you’ll get the smoothest whip if you refrigerate it for a few hours first.

Finally, for a beautiful flaky pastry crust, be sure to use a firm vegan butter such as baking block rather than margarine. plain flour 170g, plus extra for dustingcaster sugar…
