And for dessert, the lemon πŸ‹ theme continues with a second attempt at veganising Nan's Lemon Meringue Pie. 
Nice try, but not there yet. I preferred the lemon curd from my first version (sharper), but this time, the meringue was closer to memory.  I used butter beans instead of chickpeas and the #aquafaba whipped up like crazy (amazing!). I wanted to avoid a marshmallowy top so left out all agar. This meant the meringue deflated after a few hours but to me, the taste and texture was more like Nan's. Still, refinements to continue... #vegan #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofaustralia #vegansofsydney #veganbaking #aquafaba #plantpowered #plantstrong #govegan

Mail delivery πŸ“¦ A new bag and toasty-warm boots (just in time for winter!) from 100% ethical vegan companies @matt_and_nat and @pawj.california ..
Like food, the fashion industry is filled with products of violence and exploitation made under the pretence of archaic 'tradition'. Death aside, processing feathers, skin and fur to wear is resource-intensive 'old technology', and in serious need of an upgrade. 
But thanks to innovation from a growing number of vegan companies, high-quality, durable, sustainable animal-free alternatives are becoming more mainstream. 
So if you need to buy a new item of clothing or footwear, please consider compassion in fashion. For the animals πŸ™πŸ’šπŸ°

On Australia Day, a time when the lamb BBQ ads saturate the media, I'm reminded of Kurt Halsey's sweet little illustration πŸ’š 
You can find this shirt at foodfightgrocery.com BTW.

As a vegan, there were some recipes I accepted as being in the β€˜never to make again’ pile. Such as my Nan’s Lemon Meringue Pie πŸ‹

But that was until the ✨vegan-alchemist-kitchen-wizards✨ discovered that gelatinous liquid from cooked beans can act a lot like egg white. #aquafaba, you little beauty! 
So with that, behold my first attempt at veganising Nan’s recipe - I’m so happy to make a cruelty-free version of an old favourite πŸ€πŸ‘ While this recipe will evolve over time, I made v1.0 for mum today and we both agreed it tasted pretty much as we remember. What a blast from the past!

But the look on mum's face was priceless when I told her what made up the meringue. It’s so funny how 'bean juice' can gross her out...Why can’t I just whip a chicken menstrual cycle like a normal person?! Forever the weird daughter I guess πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š #vegan #govegan #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofaustralia #vegansofsydney #veganbaking #plantpowered #plantstrong #aquafaba #veganwizardry
