Ingredient Substitution: Sour Cream

You've run out of sour cream, but need some for a dish you're making.  Try one of these substitutes:

  • Plain yogurt.  Keep in mind that yogurt is a thinner consistency, but it can be subbed easily for sour cream as a topping or in dips.  Opt for greek yogurt if possible.
  • Quark.  This German-style fresh cheese has a creamy texture with a taste similar to sour cream, though again with a slightly thinner consistency.  It makes a great substitute in dips and soups, as well as a topping.
  • 1/3 cup butter + 3/4 cup buttermilk or yogurt.  This blend of butter and buttermilk/yogurt will give you a substitute that has a similar texture and taste to sour cream.  It works well for subbing into baked goods and sauces.  1 cup of the butter/buttermilk or yogurt blend = 1 cup of sour cream.
