Blend Your Sauces

I recommend using a good-quality high speed blender for this recipe. I have a fantastic Vitamix blender, which I have been using for years, and it gets daily use in our home.

Choose a blender that has a lot of power, and can pulverize even the toughest of ingredients. My blender can chop ice, dates, frozen fruits, make soups, and even blend nuts into homemade nut butter. Using a good high-speed blender will make perfectly creamy smoothies and sauces every time!

What’s In Vegan Sour Cream?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Silken Tofu
  • Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with bread baking yeast, nutritional yeast has a cheesy nutty umami flavor which is great in all kinds of dishes – I even sprinkle it on fresh popped pop corn and WOW!  Also great in soups and sauces of all kinds.
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Red Wine Vinegar: I used red wine vinegar to give this sauce a really nice bright flavor – for that, red wine vinegar is my go-to!
  • Garlic Powder: Also a major pantry staple ingredient that get used in our house daily! I love this garlic powder and add it to a lot of recipes that I would use fresh garlic in too.
  • Sea Salt
