Making delicious and creamy vegan sour cream is quick and easy. I want to share with you this no-fuss 5-minute sour cream recipe that I make often.
I use it as a dressing, as a base for sauces, dips, pancake toppings, and, of course, a dollop of it will bring sweet potatoes, borscht, or soup to another level.
watch me do it 😋
Cashews are the main ingredient for this recipe. It is essential to soak them for at least six hours (or overnight) with a pinch of salt and a splash of lemon. (see how and why to soak beans, nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains).
To add a sour taste to the cashew cream, I’m using one of my favorite alkalizing fruits of all – lemon. You can adjust the sourness of your cream to your liking. I love to add four tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, but some might find that three tbsp are sufficient. So, if you are making your vegan sour cream for the first time, you might want to start with 3 tbsp. and then add more if it feels right to your taste buds. 🙂
You will end up with about one cup of Vegan sour cream; I store it in the fridge for about four days. On the fourth day, if you have some leftovers, you can incorporate them in your stews, rice, or other dishes.
That’s all I can think of when it comes to the helpful notes for this recipe. It is a swift and straightforward one. Let me know in the comments below if you have any other questions.
