Growing up my mom would always serve Borscht  Soup and Shav(sorrel) sSup with sour cream.. For years I have tried to make a mock sour cream with tofu unsuccessfully. I feel like I hit the jackpot with this vegan sour cream made with cashews.

If you put a dob in your soup and stir it is delicious.

You need to use a high speed blender like a Vitamix to get it right.


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dehydrated onions ground in the coffee grinder


  1. Soak cashews in water for 30 miutes and drain thoroughly
  2. Put all ingredients in the high speed blender
  3. Slowly bring the blender up to speed so it doesn’t splatter everywhere
  4. Blend until creamy on high for a minute
  5. Scrape down the sides and blend for another minute or so.
  6. Use a silicon spatula to get it out.

Taste when done and make adjustments as necessary. I would use vinegar and not lemon juice to make it a little sourer.

You can also add 1 tsp dried dill for taste.
