Cashew Sour Cream (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Author Notes: This can be used as a dip or a sour cream replacement. It's delicious, savory and rich and you'll want to eat it by the spoonful.

You can add dill to make it more like ranch dressing.

Makes: 1 cup


  • 8 ounces raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • water, enough to JUST cover the cashews
  • salt, to taste
In This Recipe


  1. Drain and rinse the cashews. Put into a blender
  2. Add nutritional yeast, onion powder, and lemon juice. Add water so it just barely covers the cashews. It's okay if one or two stick out.
  3. Puree until very smooth
  4. Salt to taste

My favorite, have been making for years! Great dairy alternative. Add some dill and chives for a wonderful veggie dip.
