IT'S SO NOT Sour Cream Dip/Dressing

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

No cholesterol and low in calories, this dip is a good substitute for sour cream.


  1. Blend in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy, (I find the blender gives the best result).
  2. Season to taste with more lemon juice, honey and salt.
  3. Serve this as it is or add any of the following; chives, green onions, mustard, garlic, cayenne pepper, curry powder, whatever suits your taste or the dish you are serving, also good mixed with a few tablespoons of chutney.

I made this to add to Cucumber in Sour Cream Salad. This did make more like 2-2 1/2 cups. If I wasn`t adding to the cucumbers and just as a dip I would definitely add curry, scallions, or something to kick it up. Thanks for a healthy alternative to sour cream.

***Made for Cook-a-thon event for Pets R US May 2010*** This was very good. Thank you for giving me this option. I made it as posted and it tastes great. Then, I turned it into a dill dip for some veggies. I can see I will be making this quite often. I love sour cream on baked potatoes, but I won't eat it. But, now, thanks to Annelies, I have that option again.

Even though the dip had its merits I don't think I could use it as a substitute for sour cream. I used olive oil and found that flavor a little too strong so I'd recommend using a lighter oil instead. I used lime juice to compliment the lime chips I was going to serve with the dip. Thanks Pets 'R' Us for helping me broadening my horizons as this was the first time I had tried tofu.
