The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw sour cream recipe - Yet another simple cashew-based recipe that whips up quickly in the blender and will tingle your taste-buds!

Big thanks to Ashlyn for sending this recipe my way. It's totally my style (simple, quick and delicious) and a great excuse to make this raw vegan taco meat recipe, which I hadn't had for ages.  Because to me tacos and sour cream go hand in hand, don't you think!

This is super quick to prepare. Best made in a high-speed blender, of course.

What is your favorite way to use raw sour cream at home?

This is unbelievably awesome! I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt (instead of 1/2) and 1/2 teaspoon of salt (instead of 3/4) to get just a little bit more subtle taste. And this stuff rocks, really!

The best sour cream ever! It's smooth when the cashews are soaked for a bit (I soaked for only an hour and the consistency was marvelous.)
My favorite lunch is raw vegan tacos and this was the missing piece that put it all together! Thank you so much!

Hi Ivette! no sorry, only cashews/pine nuts/macadamia nuts would work for this recipe. (they are the creamiest nuts)

If left overnight in the fridge this sour cream tastes exactly like French Onion Dip! I am in heaven, thank you!

I just joined and cannot find the comment button. How can I make the sour cream and mayonaise last longer. I only make food for myself and these batches would not get consumed in a week.

Good question!

Freeze half of it right away – eat the fresh half right away, then defrost frozen batch in fridge when you want to eat it.

That was delicious. I threw mine in the freezer to quicken up the 2 hour wait and it was great. Will report tomorrow on how it does overnight. I seriously never thought it was going to be thick like sour cream but it was perfect.
