If you're a novice vegan or dabbling with a dairy-free diet, you might have struggled when it comes to replacing dairy essentials that you've relied on to pump up the flavour in the past, like best friends, butter and cream.
But, don't worry, you don't have to give up that creamy stroganoff, sour cream topped tacos or scones with lashings of cream just yet! there are a great number of cream substitutes out there allowing you as much dairy-free and creamy whippable fun as you can handle!
Here are all the basic vegan creams to equip yourself with, from vegan whipped cream to vegan single cream.
6 Vegan Creams
1. Onion Cream
Why not think outside the box and try onion cream - perfect for swirling onto soups or adding into savoury dishes, both cheap and easy to make, it's an ingenious and delicious solution from the creative team at ChefSteps.
Just roast some onions, remove the skins, blend the gooey insides with a little lemon, salt, and olive oil and there you have it, "onion puree".
2. Vegan Cashew Nut Cream
Vegan sour cream is great for topping tacos, chilli and any dish that calls for lashings of creamy savoury toppings.
Cashew cream is unsurprisingly based on soaked cashews, that provide the texture while apple cider vinegar and lemon are the magical ingredients that offer that trademark tang of regular sour cream. Simply whizz it all up together in a food processor.
3. Coconut Cream
If you always have a spare can of coconut milk in the cupboard, this could also help you out of a vegan cream hot spot, especially if you're making smoothies or desserts.
Simply chill a can of full-fat coconut milk, scoop out the coconut fat that separates out and solidifies (leaving the watery liquid behind), and whip it up, just like whipped cream.
World Whisky Day is the perfect excuse to raise a glass of the spirit and savour its character and flavour. But there's a lot more to whisky than hot toddies and cocktails - it makes a great ingredient, adding punch and flavour to your cooking.
