I saw that Toffutti has some, but didn't find it in the stores yet. I also found some recipes online, but i wonder if anyone has experience with it? What recipe would you recommend?

I haven't tried any home-made recipes for sour cream, but I have tried the Tofutti vegan sour cream before. It was all right, better as an ingredient than as a spread by itself. It worked well in a vegan cheesecake, but not so great on a bagel.

I didn't even think of using it as a spread. I was thinking to use it as a substitute for some russian hollyday food, like in a potato salad, as a dip for puncakes, in the soup etc.

I've made the one that is basically silken tofu and lemon juice, mixed up really well and until it's smooth. I think the recipe usually calls for a bit of sugar, but I leave that out because I prefer tangy sour cream over sweet. I thought it tasted really good, and fairly close to real dairy sour cream when it was first made, but lost all the tanginess when kept overnight. (Is there vinegar in it, too? I can't remember.)<br><br>
I do like the homemade over the Tofutti version. I think the Tofutti has too many unnecessary ingredients, and wasn't tangy enough for me- I ended up adding more lemon juice, anyway.<br><br>
Edit: I used the vegan sour cream on baked potatoes and on tacos.</div>

That's how I made it too, and I liked it. It was cheaper than the tofutti stuff.

I take soya yogurt and make it really thick and greek style by pouring it into a clean bandana and then tie it up (like a hobo bundle) and hang it from the kitchen tap for an hour or 2 to let the watery bit drain away. then scrape it into a container and sour it with a bit of lemon juice. This is so good and way cheaper than tofuti brand--and much less fat if you care about that.
