Falafel and Tzatziki substitutions.

(1/4) > >>

So I made falafel and I brought some into work for a coworker to try. She loved it. Only thing is, she's allergic to both milk and lemon juice. The poor girl broke out in hives! I want to be able to make this so that she is able to eat and enjoy it, without fear of allergic reactions.

That is the recipe I used, though I did use regular sour cream, because around my area that was all I had easy access to. I figured some ehellions might have ideas.

Any ideas, ehellions?

Hummus works well with falafel.  Lemon juice isn't required for that.

Zilla:
They have several kinds of vegan yogurts/sour cream (but yogurt is more authentic) in the store that isn't dairy based as noted in the recipe. Just add salt, cucumbers and garlic to it. 
If you can't find the vegan yogurt either, here's a link to make your own safe sour cream.

Thanks! I looked up vegan sour cream... it has lemon juice in it! I shall look for a brand that doesn't though!

Zilla:
Read my post, I modified it to add a link.  You can use the ACV in place of lemon too.  You are a great friend to her!
