Pumpkin Sour Cream

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Are you a fan of pumpkin and sour cream? I had made a mac and cheesey type sauce with some canned pumpkin and had a little bit left over, so I decided to make some vegan sour cream and try adding the left over pumpkin to it, and it is very tasty! Great for dipping raw veggies, on top of a salad, mixed into rice/couscous/quinoa, as a replacement for mayo on a sandwich...and I'm sure you guys can think of tons of other ways to use it.

If you aren't a huge pumpkin fan, then you can omit it and just make a plain sour cream. :)

Vegan Pumpkin Sour Cream Ingredients

  • 1/2 package of silken firm tofu 
  • 1/2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tsp honey agave nectar / your preferred vegan sweetener
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin / pumpkin puree (can add more or less, depending on how much pumpkin flavour you want)
  • Try experimenting by adding in garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, dill, curry powder...etc.


  1. Just blend all ingredients together until smooth! Takes best when chilled.

    Clare this looks outstanding. Here we have a form of pumpkin that I would like to try with this. I can not find canned pumpkin here on the islands so I will try and make my own. I am wondering if this would be good with other squashes I think you can add any flavor of squash you wish into this to change the flavor. Thanks for sharing. Voted.

      Thanks very much Naya! You can certainly use fresh pumpkin and just cook it until it can be pureed/mashed... or I'm sure sweet potato could also work. Or just make plain sour cream using this recipe to see if you like it without any added pumpkin and then experiment from there. Cheers! --Clare

    Found your email and dropped by before going to bed. Glad I did I have a potluck this week at work and had no idea what to make. I will have to try this and not tell them what is inside. At times they feel being vegan I have lost out on the finer points of life and eating. I do not feel this way at all. Thanks for sharing voted.

    Apologies for the typo everyone. I have been running on very little sleep. Should say *tastes best when chilled and I know many people who eat a vegan diet won't want to use honey, but if you aren't against it then that can be used. :)
