Macadamia Nut Sour Cream is an awesome replacement for dairy sour cream.  I am sharing a recipe I really liked when I was vegan for one year. During that year, I experimented with many cashew recipes including a cashew sour cream. When I found out that cashews have too many lectins, I changed the cashews for macadamia nuts and created this recipe. Now my family and I use this sour cream wherever sour cream is called for, like on tacos, burritos, stroganoff, even on Instant Pot Pinto Beans.

  2. Transfer the nuts into a high speed blender with 1/2 cup water, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and salt. Using the puree or liquefy setting on your blender, blend until you get your desired smoothness. I had to add an addition 1/3 cup water to get the sour cream as creamy and smooth as dairy sour cream. Next use in your favorite recipe!
