Pavlova is a famed Russian dish, named after a ballerina. Also very popular in New Zealand, it’s simply a meringue that is topped with fruit and whipped cream (so similar to England’s Eton Mess that uses strawberries). It’s often eaten as a Christmas dessert in Australia and New Zealand.
The invention of aquafaba (the tinned brine water from chickpeas whizzed with sugar to make ‘vegan meringue’) lends itself well to this dish, so give it a go! Mini Vegan Berry Pavolvas (Plantiful Bakery) are topped with berries and whipped coconut cream.
