This was delicious with bean and rice burritos. I didn't have onion powder, so I added some chopped onion, and I added a couple pinches of sugar because it was too sour for me, probable because of the lack of onion powder. Also added way more garlic because everything's better with more garlic.

Interesting.  This has a pleasant flavor, but it tastes nothing like sour cream.  My garlic was unbelievably strong though.

My family likes this sour cream better than other tofu based sour creams, as far as a topping goes.  The nuttiness seems to accentuate the flavor of the mexican dishes.  If you need it for a salad I am not sure if it works as well.  Everyones different so be ready to modify the amounts of each ingredient to suit your families tastes etc.

I used this in "The Czars own stroganoff"  and I thought it gave it a horrible flavor.  But I kept the left overs and used it for "Tempeh Tacos" the next night and I thought it was wonderful!  I don't know how much it taste like sour cream...my omni friend said it tasted like nuts.  I think it was very good and the sunflower taste was good.

I made taco salads and noticed I was all out of tofutti sour cream.  I found this recipe and decided to give it a try.  It was pretty good, but I would probably only use it in a pinch for sour cream.  Perhaps it's more like sour cream if raw sunflower seeds are used. That said, I would gladly use it as a dip or on a sandwich or with crackers.  It was very flavorful.
