Get the Recipe: The Best Vegan Sour Cream

The best vegan sour cream: smooth, creamy, ready in just 5 minutes using simple ingredients. Serve as a dip, sauce, spread for sandwiches, or stirred into pasta. Gluten-free and oil-free.


  • 2 cups raw cashews, (see recipe notes)
  • 1 cup plant based milk, unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp tahini


  • High speed blender


  • Drain and rinse your cashews after soaking/simmering. Transfer them to your blender/food processor together with the plant based milk, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, salt and tahini. Stop to scrape down the sides if necessary.
  • If you are having trouble blending, or want a runnier consistency, add more plant based milk.



If not using a high-speed blender, soak the cashews in warm water for at least 4 hours. Otherwise, either soak for 1 hour or simmer in a saucepan or 15 minutes.
