Macadamia nut sour cream.

I just stumbled upon this over at http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/ and wanted to share it, I haven't tried any of the cashew ones, has anyone had any success with them? I personally think the flavor of macadamia nuts would work better.

1 c macadamia nuts
1/2 c water
1 t olive oil
1 t golden flax seed, ground
2 cloves garlic
1 T lemon juice


Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
Garnish with cilantro or chives.
Tip for using Flax Seed: If you grind 1/4 cup of whole Flaxseed it will equal approximately 1/2 cup of ground Flax.
Makes approx half a cup.

I haven't tried it yet, I'm planning to give it a go tonight.

EDIT: I made this as a sauce for a stir fry, it was slightly grainy in texture, similar to hummus. My old blender has seen better days. I used firm tofu rather than the extra firm i normally use, it broke up during cooking, and I added whole grain mustard, and these along with the cooking time helped with the texture. Next time I'll soak the nuts first.
