I have already had a crazy busy week and it is only Wednesday, so only time for a quick post. This time for another veganised english classic. Eaton mess is a mix of cream, strawberries and meringue. It couldn’t be easier and tastes great. It is also a great way to use up any over ripe strawberries and the water from your chickpea can. You can find my recipe for vegan chick pea juice meringue here. One note, chickpea meringue tends to soften very quickly when it comes into contact with something wet like cream, so I would recommend folding in all the ingredients just before serving.
Eaton Mess – serves 4
400 g strawberries
250 ml plant based whipping cream
1 – 2 tbsp sugar
Start by blending half the strawberries into a puree. Pass through a sieve and stir in the sugar (use as much or as little as you like, but remember the meringue is very sweet).
Chop the remaining strawberries into pieces, whip the plant based cream and break the meringue into chunks.
Carefully fold the strawberries and meringue into the cream. Pour in the blended strawberries and stir lightly to create a marbled effect.
Spoon into bowls and enjoy.
