2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Mini Vegan Lemon Meringues on: August 22, 2009 08:42:39 PM
Oh sugar...how I love thee...






Made these for a friends birthday party, everything had to be pie themed.
Pretty happy with how these came out!
The vegan meringue mix is by "Angel Foods" it's a packet mix and it tastes like the real thing, amazing! Then there's a layer of soy-a-too cream, the lemon jelly bit is a packet mix (!? such a good find, in the cooking section) and the base is crushed up "nice" biccies with marg.

Thanks guys! Let me know if you try it and how you go. It took me a little while to perfect it.

I want some...question is what is nuterlex?

I looked it up, and it's a margarine in Australia.  Folk in the US/Canada can use Earth Balance (that's my preferred vegan margarine).  Now, where to find glucose and malt syrup...

It's a really tasty margarine, made from nuts and although more expensive tastes stacks better then regular vegan marg!

The glucose syrup and malt syrup can be replaced with a 1 cup of corn syrup. Is that what you guys have? In Australia it's called glucose syrup but I'm pretty sure it's made of the same stuff. I added 1/2 of malt syrup because I had some...it can work without it, it's an alternative to sugar and adds a nice flavour, probably find in a health food shop.

Lukka - I'm the same, sugar is like my drug haha! It was the one thing holding me back from going vegan...I know it's lame but I'd snack on lollies that have gelatine (bones) in them, but there are HEAPS of alternatives and it means I get to try new recipes and it's really rewarding. One of my favourite chocolate stores that has the best vegan chocolate that they make in South Australia has just started to list milk as an ingredient and I am livid...it's disappointing. There are some great choccys out there though and once you make the change it's actually better for you too.

I forgot to mention that I added this caramel into my banana peanut butter pie, so there is a layer of caramel it was so yum!

Stuff you need:

1 cup Nutterlex
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 cups soy milk
1/2 cup glucose syrup
1/2 cup malt syrup

Put it all in a DEEP saucepan and cook on medium heat still it gets real fluffy and huge, stir stir stir...make sure it doesn't burn, watch the consistency and colour and you'll see it change and get thick. You will need to make sure it gets really hot. I test to see if it's ready by popping a little spoonful into the fridge/freezer and see whether it sets. The longer you cook the harder it'll set. I have burnt my finger and tongue making this by being inpatient, please be careful!

Take off heat and carefully pour onto a tray lined with baking paper.

Add stuff to it like crushed nuts and melted vegan choccy. Once I added crushed nuts, a layer of chocolate whipped cream and then rolled it up, cut into pieces and dipped into vegan chocolate, yum! I got chocolate everywhere haha! This would also be an amazing caramel sauce for icecream!

Have fun making this, it's addictive!!!

Very cute! I have a whole bag of socks just waiting to be turned into something.-just as soon as my craft room is put back to rights. Tornado lightly hit our house and damaged the roof. Only one room had water damage-my craft room. On the upside I get to take down the antique wallpaper and paint it whatever color I want. I am really missing my craft room right now though!

Sad to hear about your craft room, hope you can get it back into working order! most of the time my area LOOKS like a tornado has hit!?!

This cheeky little dog is actually made out of a cheap ($2) pair of gloves, not socks! super easy.
