VEGAN BERRY PAVLOVA
MAKES: 6 single servings or 1x (2 layer) pavlova PREPTIME: 20 minutes COOKTIME: 1 hr 30 min
for the pavlova:
1 can of chickpeas (liquid, aquafaba)
150g of caster sugar
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Blueberry compote (1/2 a cup frozen blueberries heated in a pot with a teaspoon of caster sugar)
1 Orley whip dairy-free whipped cream
Passion fruit pulp
Edible flowers (optional)
Preheat the oven to 130°c and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
Drain the can of chickpeas and keep the liquid (aquafaba) in a bowl.
Transfer the aquafaba to a mixer and add the cream of tartar.
Beat on high for 5 minutes until the mixture doubles in size.
Continue beating the mixture and slowly add the caster sugar.
Beat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add the vanilla and beat for a further two minutes.
Transfer the mixture to the baking trays and create two equally sized circles (around 20-25 cm diameter). You could also use this to make smaller (single serving) pavlovas, just create smaller circles on the baking trays.
Bake the pavlovas in the oven for 1hr 30min - 1hr 45min.
Once baked turn the oven off and allow the pavlovas to cool in the oven over night or for a minimum of 5 hours to completely dry out.
Layer the pavlovas with the whipped Orley whip and top with berries and fruit.
