Molecular meringue

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if I can do a variation of a beet merengue but use roasted red pepper juice or purée, thoughts?

Subbing roasted red peppers for beets would be a snap.

By using foaming agents, such as purified albumin, and foam stabilizers, such as isomalt or another savory sugar, you can make novel set foams, like a beet meringue that has a delicate, crisp texture and an intense flavor when dehydrated.

 

If you don't have access I can paraphrase the gist of it but it'll take a bit of typing.

It's Albumin powder - powdered egg substitute would make a hell of a mess...

no worries it's a subtle difference in naming - but it would make a big difference in the method!
