The Most Delicious Vegan Plant-Based Sour Cream
Since going Vegan and Plant Based over a year ago, I have been looking for a sour cream recipe that we could make at home that was easy and one that my family would like.
We are huge Taco Tuesday fans in our house and we have many dishes that pair great with sour cream.
One of the things I love about having a recipe blog is that we are always looking for new ways to make our favorite foods from scratch. Especially dressings, dips, and sauces.
Since our family is also oil-free we try and avoid the dressings, dips, and sauces in the stores; they are usually full of oil or have other added ingredients that are unnecessary in a plant based or vegan diet.
This recipe is made using just a few ingredients you can easily find in the grocery store
Apple Cider Vinegar
Add the raw cashews to warm water and let sit about 10 minutes, drain, and rinse.
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Adjust ingredients to taste.
This plant-based sour cream is oil-free, dairy-free, and can be made in under 10 minutes.
We have used it on our Homemade Tortilla Bean Soup, nachos, and on our newest recipe coming soon, our Fiesta Potatoes.
- 1 ½ cups raw cashews
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (from the mother)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
- 1 tsp Himalayan or sea salt
- In a high-speed blender or food processor add all the
ingredients and mix together until smooth
Add additional ingredient to desired taste. If you do not have a high-speed blender or food
processor, you will want to soak your cashews before-hand. In a small bowl add in cashews and hot water
and let soak for about 10-15 minutes.
- For added flavor, add your mixture to a plant-based yogurt
and mix together until smooth. You can
use a plant-based yogurt like Kite-Hill’s Unsweetened Almond Yogurt and enjoy!
Store unused amount in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
