1. Vegan Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
Vegan meringue? You may be wondering how such a thing is possible without eggs. One word: aquafaba. Made from brine from a can of chickpeas, this slightly viscous liquid is a surprisingly perfect substitute for egg whites. Once you add all the sugar and flavoring, any chickpea flavor disappears and you’re left with something that tastes exactly like meringue. Using aquafaba opens up the world of vegan cooking, as you can use it to substitute egg whites in non-vegan recipes. This recipe for lemon meringue cupcakes is just one of many vegan desserts that will seriously impress your friends. Find the recipe here:
