This is a great substitute for regular sour cream if you don’t tolerate dairy. And it’s super simple! It will stay good for up to 1 week in the fridge. The longer you are able to soak the cashews, the creamier it will be. 1 hour seems to work well if you’re shorter on time, though! This is paleo and Whole30 compliant.
Dairy-free Sour Cream
- 1 cup cashews, soaked in hot water for 1+ hours
- 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (or lime juice if you want to add to chili! so good!)
- 1/4 cup filtered water
- sea salt, to taste
- Drain cashews and put into a blender. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high for 30 seconds. Add to your chili, tacos, or whatever your heart desires 🙂
