Cashew Sour Cream - Non-Dairy Sour Cream Alternative/Substitute

“It blew my mind how much this tasted like regular sour cream! Yes, it's vegan, pareve, non-dairy and raw... But it's creamy as can be, and you can use it in any recipe that calls for sour cream. My lactose intolerant friend who hadn't eaten sour cream in years was in heaven when I served this to her. It refrigerates well. Try it on black bean soup, burritos, nachos, or tamales. You can also use it to cool down spicy recipes, or put a dab of it on borscht (beet soup).”
