Love this sour cream recipe. Make sure to follow directions and drain the tofu. As good as it is day 1, better after it sets. Add some mustard to make more like mayonnaise.

I tried tofu for my first time with this recipe and found the recipe to be very close to sour cream. I did not add salt to mine, but I believe a pinch would have gone a long way. I used the sour cream in a twice baked potato.


While I life silken tofu, I found this to be a little pungent.
