So my husband bought a couple containers of We Can't Say... sour cream. I made some dip out of the first one (using a recipe I've made with Tofutti sour cream a million times) and really, really did not like the texture or taste at all. Like, I stopped eating dip VOLUNTARILY. That's just nuts.

The second container has been sitting in the refrigerator mocking me ever since.

So I'm looking for recipes that call for sour cream but would kind of mask the specific flavor of this sour cream... ideally without requiring a bunch of other commercial faux-dairy products that aren't in my budget (so cheesecake, for example, probably wouldn't work). Any suggestions? Thanks!

I'd make a cake. This one was great for me.

Maybe make a Tazaki sauce out of it? That should mask the flavor ok. I love me some Tazaki on a gyro, or even on a salad

Add some grated or thinly sliced cucumbers (squeeze liquid out)

Fresh minced garlic

Lemon juice

A bunch of fresh dill, and a bit of dried oregano, some pepper

The cake seems like a great way to mask the flavor, though TBH, I would do something cheap and easy so I could bin it if the flavor was still there and gross. Nothing worse than using a bunch of expensive ingredients to try and save something that tastes like buttcrack, only to end up with a bunch of expensive ingredients that now all taste like buttcrack.

I bought Soy Nog that had the worst chemical aftertaste, which lingered on through being used in coffee (threw out the coffee), pancakes (fed the pancakes to the dog) and finally I just binned it. Some things are just too foul.

Totally, coffeecake! I believe American Vegan calls for the stuff.

I've made cornbread with faux sour cream. Loaded up with corn, cilantro, and the jalapeƱos you shouldn't be able to taste it. I think I made this one. Only I used some canola oil and water for the earth balance and added some extra flavorings.

Any baking recipe that calls for soy yogurt can be subbed with sour cream. And Hannah Kaminsky's whoopie pies call for it! The recipe is in My Sweet Vegan, but I'm pretty sure it's online as well (maybe she did an ep on Everyday Dish?). Whoopie pies are always a good idea.

These are all really good suggestions! I'll probably make a decision depending on what I have all the ingredients for... thanks, all!

I also vote for coffeecake, but sour cream donuts would also be awesome.

Maybe make some seven layer dip with it. Taco seasoning should mask the flavor pretty well, and with all the other things going on in there, you shouldn't notice it even if the seasoning doesn't completely mask it. http://www.mccormick.com/Recipes/Appeti ... Fiesta-Dip

I don't generally care for faux products and I recently used up an unwanted tub of sour cream by adding a dollop to my grits every day. Made them really creamy and the nooch covered up the taste. (But that was Tofutti..I don't know what this brand tastes like!)
