Make a creamed spinach recipe, for instance, incorporating a “goat cheese” from yogurt, almond milk, extra virgin olive oil, fresh crushed garlic, and a dash of fresh ground nutmeg.
You might try fat-free cream cheese, unless you are trying to eliminate dairy items all-together, in which case, several of the egg-substitute products out today are very good.
As for a substitute for sour cream, try food processing some cottage cheese and adding a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice, or skim milk with a dash of vinegar.
