Vegan sour cream

Posted by clstevens | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 25-04-2016


Since I saw the movie Cowspiracy I have been eating for the most part a vegan diet.  I have been finding it pretty easy, especially when I am the one cooking, my boyfriend however has been missing some of our treat meals such as nachos.  Since our diet before was vegetarian, I figured I could probably make some really good nachos if I found a good vegan cheese substitute and could make some “sour cream”. The cheese I used was Daiya, it was the only one available and is soy free, so I felt lucky to find it at all up here in the sticks – it is okay, especially when you have all that other good stuff on there like guacamole and salsa. For the “sour cream”.  There are many “sour cream” recipes online and I combined a few of what I thought were the best.  My boyfriend really liked it, that is always my litmus test.  The next day I made tacos with the left over ingredients and I am sure that this sauce would be great on other treats, like a dip for home made baked yam fries.

1 TBSP of nutritional yeast
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 cup of cashews soaked over night and then drained
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
Blend in high power blender like a Vitamix until smooth – probably 3 minutes will do it. If you like it more tangy add in more lemon juice or more apple cider vinegar. The next time I make this I am going to see about adding less water to make it a little thicker. I did add in a few shakes of garlic salt though I am not sure how much that added to the flavor, I may skip it next time.
