Cashew Sour Cream

Dressings & Dips

Eating plant based doesn't mean you can't enjoy delicious, creamy, rich  sour cream!

This recipe is made from healthy, protein filled cashews with a dash of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Soaking the cashews in boiling water speeds up prep time - simple, delicious and a staple in my plant based kitchen. 

Perfect on chilli, baked potatoes, veggie or grain bowl or as a dip for fresh cut up veggies.


This recipe is inspired and adapted from Oh She Glows.
