This was a nice basic vegetarian sour cream that comes together in a jiffy. The lemon taste is fairly pronounced which was perfect for topping the zucchini "crab" cakes I was making. For Mexican dishes I think I'll sub lime juice for the lemon. Read More

I liked this. I used lime instead of lemon and added some Sriracha to add it to my tacos. We also used it on salad. As a straight substitute for dairy sour cream I suggest reducing the amount of acidic ingredients as it is quite tangy. In the future I will use three tsp citrus and one tsp vinegar then go by taste from there. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This is a good vegan sour cream recipe. Don't expect it to taste exactly like dairy sour cream and you won't be disappointed. To better suit my personal preferences I reduce the amount of lemon juice by half omit the oil and use the tiniest pinch of Stevia instead of sugar. Read More
