I’m a huge fan of creamy and dreamy, and I absolutely love the taste and texture that sour cream provides for many dishes. I came across this recipe a few years ago and was delighted at how remarkably similar it is to real sour cream. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! You would never know that vegan “sour cream” was so delicious–even my non-vegan friends can’t get enough.
The base of this cashew cream can be used for just about anything requiring a creamy texture. For basic “cream” just use the first portion of the recipe: cashews and water. This cream base can be used for all kinds of recipes, such as Roasted Garlic & White Wine Cauliflower Alfredo.
Add water, starting with ¼ C and blend until smooth.
Continue to add more water a little at a time, until you reach desired consistency.
The cream will thicken as it stands, so don't worry if the consistency started out too thin. It most likely will thicken.
For the sour cream:
Add the rest of the ingredients with the water.
For an extra “sour-ee” flavor, leave out for a few hours to allow a little fermentation to set in.
Store in an air-tight container for up to a week in the fridge.
