I start with a batch of vegan meringues (above). Sylvia had to take something to Show and Tell at school under the theme of The Science of Cooking. I baked this batch of meringues for her to take in and ask kids to guess what was in them. No one got it. (In fact no one even guessed egg white that is traditionally used in meringues!) She then told them a bit about the exciting recent discovery of using aqua faba instead of egg whites.
I think I was more excited about aqua faba and she was more excited about taking meringues to give out to her class. But I still feel it a great thing for kids to know about. Oh, and I learned that I need to make sure not to pipe the meringues too close together, even if I am very tired.

Coconut Black Eyed African Beans. It is a favourite stew with coconut cream, tomato passata and black eyed beans. When I make favourite dishes that I blogged years ago, if time permits I take a nice photo to improve the look of old posts. My photography skills still need much work but I have improved since I started blogging in 2007.
