  • Cooking: 5 minutes
  •       

Ingredients

1 egg white
55g caster sugar
10 mini tartlet cases
icing sugar mixture, to dust
LEMON AVOCADO CREAM
55g caster sugar
finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 large avocado
1 tbs coconut oil

Method

1

To make lemon avocado cream, stir sugar, zest and juice in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer until slightly thickened to form a syrup. Cool completely.

2

Blend avocado, coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of the lemon syrup until smooth. Divide mixture among tartlet cases.

3

Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. With motor operating, gradually add sugar, beating until meringue is thick and glossy.

4

Spoon or pipe meringue onto tartlets.

5

Using a blowtorch, lightly toast meringue until golden. Dust with sifted icing sugar.

6

TIPS - Lemon avocado cream can be made up to a day ahead. If you do not have a blowtorch, simply preheat oven to its highest setting and bake tarts for 1-2 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned.
