I’m going to stop you cilantro/ coriander haters right there! If you don’t like this happy herb, simply omit it or add another herb- parsley and a small amount of mint would work a treat in this too.

This is the best sour cream combo to add to any Mexican inspired dish- in particular my AVOCADO TACOS, MEXICAN BURRITO BOWL, MAD MEX BOWL, LOADED NACHOS or anything with flavors from south of the boarder.

You may be wondering why I call it cilantro instead of coriander (bazaar as us Aussies call it coriander) well to be honest; I just like the word better. Doesn’t it sound more fancy? I think so; therefore I will go all American and call it cilantro too! #thuglife #cilantroforever

The chipotle adds a punch but the cilantro adds a delicate herby flavor, mix that with the creamy cashews and this is a winner.

  • 1 cup of cashews
  • 2 steams of cilantro (stalk only- no leaves)
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. chipotle
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup of water


  1. Soak cashews over night in a bowl covered with filtered water.
  2. Add cilantro, nutritional yeast, chipotle, lemon juice, filtered water, salt and pepper to a high-powered blender. Processes on high until smooth (50sec, speed 10). You may need to scrape down the sides a few times to ensure everything is completely smooth.
  3. Transfer into a glass jar and allow to sit uncovered in a dry spot for 24hrs. This will allow the sour cream to ferment and will add more depth to the flavor.
  4. Store in an airtight glass jar. This keeps for 2 weeks and can be made ahead of time. The sour cream can thicken as it sits so just add a small amount of water to the jar and shake to combine if you wish to thin it out.
