How Do I Substitute Sour Cream?

Recommended Posts

I need a substitute for sour cream. The recipe uses sour cream to mix everything together (chicken stuffed tomatoes). Is there a DF/gluten-free/SF alternative I could use?

Soyco Foods makes a DF/gluten-free/SF alternative that works okay if there are a lot of seasonings. It's best to use it when you can let the flavors blend for several hours.

This is difficult. I sometimes find I have to give up a recipe or a food. One food I have found I can do a lot with is Hummus. There are so many flavors. The consistency is creamy. I know it's not easy to be soy and dairy free, I am, but it is worth it to your health. Perhaps a flavored hummus or a plain hummus would alter your recipe, but at the same time, make it better?

One product I'm aware of is made by Galaxy Nutritional Foods. They have a few different product lines to accommodate those with various intolerances.

Another company that comes to mind is Spectrum Organics. While I didn't see a sour scream, they do have mayonnaise, which might work in some cases. I didn't check ingredients.

I didn't think about hummus.....that might work and the souring the coconut milk with vinegar thing sounds interesting..... is that just putting vinegar in the coconut milk to taste?

Here again, after talking to my wife she said there is also IMO. I am not real knowledgeable on this one but it is some thing you could check out or maybe some one else knows some thing about this one. I know though that is is in most if not all of the stores. So no running to the health food store or health food isle. Ok Good luck again.

hmmm.... Imo. the web turned up some non-specific stuff but I'll have to look for it in the grocery store next time I'm there. I haven't made the recipe yet but here it is if anyone wants to try it:

Chicken and Wild Rice Stuffed Tomatoes (From a Rachel Ray Magazine)

1/4 cup wild rice

8 large tomatoes

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion- chopped

4 ounces mushrooms coarsley chopped

1 lb. ground chicken

1 tablespoon sweet smoked paprika

1/2 cup sour cream

1 bunch dill - chopped (approx. 1/4 cup)

Salt

Prepare wild rice according to package directions

Cut a 1/2 inch slice off the top of each tomato. Scoop out and discard seeds, most of flesh and excess juice. Place tomato shells on baking sheet and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 (F)

In skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat, add onion and cook approx. 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 1 minute. Add ground chicken and cook for 6 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spoon until crumbly. Remove from heat and and stir in cooked wild rice, sour cream and dill. Add salt to taste.

Stuff the rice mixture into the tomatoes. Brush the outside of the tomatoes with remaining olive oil and season with salt. Cover loosely with foil and bake until tomatoes are tender and fill is hot (approx. 25 minutes).
