This is an amazingly quick and easy vegan sour cream recipe.  It’s great as a dip for parties.  It’s also a nice topping to keep on hand to add zing to your potatoes or beans.  You can also try swapping out the dill with your other favorite herbs.  Remember: 1 Tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried.  You may need to add more or less to taste.


1 cup cashews
1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt


Place all ingredients in your Vita-Mix or food processor and blend until smooth. Store in fridge. Will last for up to 4 days.

1. You may need to add more or less water depending on the strength of your equipment.

2. If you're using the Vita-Mix profressional series, use the "frozen dessert" setting and use the tamper throughout the processing.

3. You may prefer to soak the cashews prior to processing. I do not do this, but it is said that soaking the cashews will make them easier to digest. If you prefer to soak your nuts, the recommended soak time is 1-2 hours.

    I think you meant to say 1Tbsp. fresh herbs = 1tsp. dried. I also think the recipe may need to be modified — the herbs quantities seem to be reversed.
