Calories: 40kcal


  • 1/2 cup Dairy free Forager sour cream or your favorite plain yogurt, or mayo (120 g)
  • 1/2 Bunch of cilantro (20 g)
  • 1/2-1 Jalapeño (15 g)
  • 1 Tomatillo (40 g)
  • 1 Frozen garlic cube, or fresh clove
  • 2 Tbsp Pepitas (30 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Red wine vinegar (30 g)
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt


  • Blend everything until pretty smooth.
  • Use on salads, tacos, rice bowls, and grilled meats!


I love using this Forager plant-based sour cream for a non-dairy, non-oil base. But feel free to use your favorite plain Greek yogurt, or even mayo, or a combo of the two. If you swap for non-fat Greek yogurt, your macros will be just slightly lighter at 34 cal, 1.9 fat, 1.6 carbs, 2.7 protein. It will turn out thicker, but just thin it out with a little more vinegar and it will hardly change a thing!
