  • Why do I like it?

I have tried several recipes for non-dairy sour cream and I like this one the best.  It can be used any time you want a non-dairy sour cream.  For instance, I made a simple lunch using a warmed ancient grains tortilla.  I added some salad that I had in the fridge and topped it with the cashew sour cream.  I also use in on jackfruit tacos and as a sauce for pasta.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

Not a thing!  This recipe is great exactly as it appears in the cookbook.  Just make sure you blend for a while until smooth, this may take longer than you think so keep going if it is still lumpy.  I start blending on my Vitamix number 4/5 for about 5 minutes until you can only see small pieces.  Then I put the blender on full blast to get a really creamy consistency.
