Sour Cream–An easy, multi-purpose topping

I found this easy recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, the 7 Secrets Cookbook. Not only do the cashews help stretch the tofu to make it go farther if you're on a budget, but it also tastes great! This is the kind of topping you will always want to have on hand to use on potatoes, haystacks, and sandwiches. You can also use it as a base for salad dressings and dips.

Sour Cream

Blend until very smooth:
1 12-ounce box Mori-Nu Silken Soft Tofu (Mori-Nu tofu will give it the best flavor, but you can use 1/2 brick regular tofu plus 3/4 cup water)
1 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup lemon juice
1-1/2 Tbsp. honey (or 2 Tbsp. sugar)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder.

Keep refrigerated.
