Non-Dairy Cream Substitute

cheap college chef | May 31, 2008 11:06 AM

Howdy all,

One of the friends that I'm having over for dinner soon can't eat any dairy. I really wanted to make my delicious chicken linguine in mushroom cream sauce, but obviously real cream is out of the question.

On the shoddy advice of a few websites, I bought a container of powdered coffee whitener and tried mixing that with water to make cream. Now, either I was doing it wrong or it was simply a bad idea, but either way I was not going to waste my chicken in that sauce.

I tried the powdered version because I couldn't find any liquid non-dairy creamer (whatever that really is), even in the frozen section.

Any suggestions?
