I know there's a dairy free one, made by Tofutti, but they're not 100% sure about it being gluten-free or not... and I really can't have ANY gluten. I'm also trying to stay dairy free but I absolutely LOVE sour cream...

Does anyone know of a company that makes this? And possibly a good dairy free cheese-like product for nachos?

My kids like Follow Your Heart cheese. My husband likes it, too. I don't, but I'd rather eat no cheese than eat it (or, eat it in very sparing amounts). We have Follow Your Heart sour cream in the refrigerator, but haven't actually tried it yet! (The Skinny "adult female dog" authors are the ones who recommend this brand of cheese on their Web site. The cheese does melt and shred.) There is a new cheese out there called Daiya, which we had on Amy's gluten free macaroni (frozen section). It tasted much more like cheese. It melts more for pizza; locally, a pizza place uses Daiya instead. I think it can be bought only online right now.

I'm definitely looking into those things... thank you! When you DO taste the sour cream though, could you let me know please? I absolutely LOVE sour cream and I cannot go dairy free completely until I figure a way to get that. I don't even care if it's as good or not. I just want something like it... haha. I wonder if Whole Foods has that? I'll check. And I need to look into that cheese too. Daiya. *Looks it up*

Thank you!! Wooo, gluten-free and dairy-free here I come! [:

Update: Daiya is amazing. Little salty, but amazing.


Also. About the Follow Your Heart sour cream... is there another soy-free alternative? Probably not, but I can always hope. =/

Hm...good to know.

Lyco -- are you new to the gluten-free diet? I didn't have sour cream for the first four months, but now I can have it without too much issue. I'm back to eating cheese, too. Again, took about four months, but now i feel much better on it. My point: over time, you can probably have it again, if you are willing to give it up for just a little while. Though sometimes I could get away with it with a lactase supplement. Before now, I used rice cheese, which is actually pretty good for salads and nachos...never used it for pizza. But the texture is about right, and the flavor is darn close -- it is very mild.

We just tasted the Follow Your Heart--finally. I don't think it tastes like sour cream. It wasn't horrible. But, my husband and son liked it (especially with strawberries). I think it would be ok in small amounts. I do remember making a vegan sour cream at one point with silken tofu--the key is the lemon juice in it to give it the sour flavor.

I think raw, soaked cashews are supposed to make a good sour cream as well--and soy free. (For fake dips/spreads--raw nuts are the best--very much like cheese. They work in lasagna, too--the tinkiyada noodles are good.) The best vegan parmesan is Parma--it's a nutritional yeast and raw walnut blend (no soy)--it's great on Italian dishes.

I'm pretty new to it, yeah. I've been diagnosed for a year, but up until about 7 weeks ago I would be on the diet for a while and then I'd cheat.

Not going to do that anymore though. Stupid, stupid idea.

@nicolebeth

I'll have to look into those cashews. Hmmm. That sounds interesting. Thank you!
