Sounds so yummy! This recipe is from Neva & Jim Brackett's 7 Secrets Cookbook to lose weight, lower cholesterol, and reverse diabetes. Update: I tried this today and was really pleased with the results! I used it with Wonderful Curried Sweet Potato Soup by Tigerduck and I couldn't tell it wasn't real sour cream. Of course you can tell its not the real thing when eating it plain, but it's still nice. Best alternative when mixing it with other ingredients you would use sour cream with though. I'm sure I'll get the same terrific results when I use it in a black bean soup I plan to make tomorrow.

This worked great as a sour cream substitute in a pasta sauce I made. I used yellow onion instead of chives and halved the recipe, otherwise I made it as written. I can't say if it tastes good on its own but I'll still most certainly use it again!

- 1⁄2 cup raw cashew nuts
