For this recipe you will only need 5 ingredients. I use it for many salads, pastas and other dishes. You can use it as is or by adding garlic, green herbs and a little bit of water to make it a salad dressing.
1 cup of soaked overnight cashew nuts
1/2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
Blend it all together in a blender and serve. This is one of the simplest and the most "sour-cream like" tasting vegan version.
Options: You can substitute cashew nuts with almonds or/and hemp seeds. Lemon can be substituted with lime. If you are making a salad dressing from the start, add 1/2 cup less nuts.
