I’m not even a fan of traditional sour cream. Until now, I’ve only ever tolerated it as an invisible ingredient in certain recipes. For some reason though, the idea of adding lime to that flavor profile was intriguing to me – and my instinct was spot on!
This is such a yummy addition to a baked potato it isn’t even funny. I also think it would be great on tacos/nachos or plopped on top of tortilla or black bean soup (as the original recipe suggested).
Vegan Lime Cream
Recipe Courtesy of Skinny Bitch, Ultimate Everyday Cookbook
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
2 tbs almond milk*
2 tbs lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
Pepper, to taste
1 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
*I’m not entirely sure this is necessary, as it thinned the cream out considerably in addition to the lime juice. I think next time I’d try it without.
- In a blender or food processor, combine the sour cream, milk and lime juice. Blend until thoroughly mixed and creamy
- Add the salt, pepper and cilantro and blend until well combined
- Use immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container
Yield: 3/4 cup
