Raw Vegan Sour Cream

Raw Vegan Sour Cream
This raw vegan sour cream is one of the easiest things to make!  It requires little effort and will create the best vegan sour cream you have ever tasted!

All you need for this recipe is two ingredients and one day to let it culture.

I use to be overwhelmed with the thought of “culturing” and buying active bacteria. But once I learned how easy creating fermented foods was to make, I became hooked, and I want you to become too! Fermenting my own yogurts and spreads has doubled my confidence in the kitchen, and gave me a true feeling of pride, make something completely from scratch. While the cost is about the same as buying a similar product at the store, when you make it yourself you know exactly what is in it, and where every ingredient came from. I have also taken an ingredient list of about 15 down to 2!

Since that first batch of Raw Coconut Yogurt, I have learned that with just a switch of the main ingredient, you can create a whole variety of tastes and textures! After running out of ideas to use up a huge bulk sized bag of pine nuts, I wondered if they would make a yogurt. Following the same steps as the Coconut Yogurt I patiently waited for the taste test… and what I found was how similar the taste was to sour cream!!! Now let me say, I am no stranger to the nacho platters at many vegan eateries, with that I have become accustom to the sweeter tasting, cashew based sour cream that piles atop those plates of heaven. While cashew based sour cream is delightful in itself, it lacks the tartness of a dairy based sour cream.

When I tasted this heavenly spoonful, that was thick, and creamy with a slight tartness and no sweetness. I knew I was onto a winner!
