That depends on SO many factors....eggs vary in size/weight, the age of the egg, the temperature of the egg, altitude, humidity....it all affects the volume of meringue. Out of curiosity...why do you ask?

I came up (It turned out pretty good too) with this recipe for macarons using red lentils, and I wanted to get an idea of the comparison between how much volume of whipped red lentil batter is the equivalent of the eggs used.
