Fall is by far, my favorite season. Maybe not always weather-wise (I live in Sweden you guys), but definitely inspiration-wise. It feels like starting over somehow, and I get so many new ideas that I often don’t even know where to begin. One of the many things I enjoy most about fall are all the beautiful, colorful leaves. I become obsessed with finding the most beautiful ones and preserving them between pages in old books. I keep some books solely for this purpose. And I enjoy the baking too, of course. All the beautiful apples and pumpkins and all my favorite spices. Long walks in the forest and lots of chai tea and hot chocolate. I could go on.
This pie has been lingering in my mind for a while. Actually since the first time I tried making vegan meringue which was.. almost a year and a half ago now. I find it absolutely fascinating that chickpea brine (which is sort of gross) can turn into a beautiful, luscious meringue. Mind blown! Now I’m curious to know, have you ever tried making or eating vegan meringue?
