This vegan sour cream is everything you want a sour cream to be, creamy, tangy and rich!
It’s the best accompaniment to a baked potato out there.
In fact, I may or may not have made roughly 10 baked potatoes on the same day I made this batch of vegan sour cream (oh I did!).
It’s amazing as a topping for Mexican dishes like nachos or tacos, as a dip or spread, on top of soups, on a big bowl of vegan chili, as a salad dressing, and of course, as mentioned, on top of your baked potatoes (with chives, always with chives!).
It’s a super easy 6-ingredient recipe that just involves throwing your ingredients in the blender, blending it up and there you have it!
You don’t need to soak your cashews first unless your blender is a very weak model (and if this is the case, 15 minutes in boiling water should be sufficient), and the result is a perfectly creamy, tangy cream with the ideal amount of sour!
Cashews provide the creamy base, and lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and nutritional yeast combine to create the tanginess.
A little sea salt for flavor balance and just enough water for the perfect thickness and you have a perfectly delicious vegan sour cream.
I really think you will dance a jig of joy when you taste this sour cream, really! Especially if you have been wanting a dairy free alternative to regular sour cream! Because this stuff is the bees knees! (Whatever the bees knees means, nobody knows, but it’s definitely something good!).

- An ideal replacement for ‘regular’ sour cream
