Cashew Sour Cream - Non-Dairy Sour Cream Alternative/Substitute

Cashew Sour Cream - Non-Dairy Sour Cream Alternative/Substitute created by Whats Cooking

It blew my mind how much this tasted like regular sour cream! Yes, it's vegan, pareve, non-dairy and raw... But it's creamy as can be, and you can use it in any recipe that calls for sour cream. My lactose intolerant friend who hadn't eaten sour cream in years was in heaven when I served this to her. It refrigerates well. Try it on black bean soup, burritos, nachos, or tamales. You can also use it to cool down spicy recipes, or put a dab of it on borscht (beet soup).

    Delicious! I think I squeezed the lemon too much tho. It came out with a fairly lemony taste. We'll see how it tastes after it's chilled.

    I made it with the pulp from my freshly made cashew milk and it came out very nice.

    As another reviewer suggested, I didn't add the lemon juice and added more apple cider vinegar. I also used soy milk instead of water which I loved.
