Sweet Sesame Meringue

November 29, 2009

For dinner tonight, Adam and I used Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian for inspiration, and decided on pasta. Not having any store bought pasta on hand, I decided to go ahead and make fresh – really not so hard with the Kitchenaid attachment we’ve blogged about before. I used the Bittman recipe this time, and it calls for 2 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks… leaving me 3 egg whites. I then turned to the meringue section and found many recipes calling for 4 egg whites – so in the end I only wasted 1 yolk.

These turned out lovely – crisp on the outside and chewy inside, and the toasted sesame orange combo  worked really well. Definitely something I’ll do again in similar circumstances.
