What you need:
1 cup aquafaba
½ cup superfine sugar
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
½ cup mixed berries
6 tablespoons soy yogurt
Edible flowers, for garnish
Confectioners’ sugar, to serve
What you do:
1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and draw out a circle 12 inches in diameter.
2. Into a bowl, add aquafaba and whisk with a hand mixer 3 to 6 minutes, until soft peaks form. Slowly add sugar and cream of tartar while whisking until stiff peaks forms.
3. Carefully spoon meringue on to parchment-lined sheet and spread to fill circle. Using a spoon, add dollops all around the edge to make sides higher than the middle.
4. Bake for 2½ hours, remove from oven and let cool completely. Carefully cut paper from meringue and transfer to a serving plate. Spoon yogurt on to meringue and top with berries and edible flowers. Garnish with edible flowers, dust with confectioners’ sugar and slice to serve.
