Last week we brought you a recipe for vegan and gluten free rejuvelac from the recipe book Artisan Vegan Cheese Cookbook by Miyoko Schinner. Rejuvelac is the base of many of the recipes in Schinner’s book, which cultures the dishes.
Anyone who eats vegan knows that it is hard to find a good vegan sour cream. The “sour” in sour cream comes from the way it is cultured, and many commercially available sour creams aim for texture, seeming to ignore taste. Schinner’s recipe cultures the sour cream, just like real sour cream and, unlike most commercially available vegan sour cream, doesn’t contain soy, which many vegans like to avoid.
|Don't you just hate it when you are looking for a recipe, and you have to scroll through dozens of pages before you get to the recipe way down at the bottom of the page?
That's because they are trying to make money off you and Google requires it. We don't care - we're here to share recipes with you, and will never make you scroll through several pages only to get to what you want - the recipe. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if you like something you found here, please consider donating to support The Happy Gluten Free Vegan!
Vegan and Gluten Free Sour Cream
1 cup raw, soaked cashews (soaked 3 to 8 hours)
1 cup gluten free rejuvelac
Pinch of salt
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a clean glass bowl, cover, and let sit at room temperature for 24 to 48 hours, until a bit thicker and sour to your liking. Line a colander or sieve with a double layer of cheesecloth. Rest the colander over a bowl and pour in the sour cream. Allow the sour cream to drain for at least 3 hours, until thick. Transfer to a container with an airtight lid, discarding the liquid, and place in the fridge. The longer it sits, the thicker it will get. It will keep for 2 weeks.
