Raw Macadamian Nut "Sour Cream" Anyone?

Today I have been on a cooking frenzy and made my delicious raw macadamian nut “sour cream.” This dish is SO easy to make and is delicious on top of salads, as a “sour cream or mayonaise” for sandwiches or on sprouted bread, bagels or manna bread.
I am going to put this on top of my salad today and then serve it to the kids with a side of chips this afternoon for a snack (my new favorite are the Split Pea Nut-free, gluten-free ones by Gourmet Solutions). You can also use this as a dip at a cocktail party and I promise your friends will devour it!

1- 1 1/2 cups raw macadamian nuts (soaked for 4-6 hours, drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup oil (I like to use hemp oil or olive oil)
/4-1/2 cup water (add slowly to get to your desired consistency)
Juice from one lemon
Hefty dash of sea salt1/4 chopped onion (to add later)
Mix all of the above ingredients except the onions into a food processor and run until smooth. Add the onions at the very end for garnish and gently mix in.


  1. Yum, this looks great, thanks for recipe and the kind comment on my blog! :)
