  • 1Preheat oven to 120°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • 2To make the meringues, place the aquafaba in a mixer and whip to stiff peaks for about 12-15 minutes. Gradually add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, continuously whipping, until the sugar dissolves.
  • 3Dollop the mixture into 6 rounds over the paper and bake for 1 ½ to 2 hours, until the meringues are dry and firm to the touch. Turn off the oven, leave the door ajar, and allow to cool for another 30 minutes.
