next in our kitchen basics series, we're taking a look at buttermilk substitutes. i never seem to have buttermilk in the refrigerator when i need it. lots of recipes call for buttermilk, and certainly nothing can beat real buttermilk. however, there are a few great substitutes for when you don't have any buttermilk on hand. here are the best buttermilk substitutes . . .
milk + vinegar
put 1 tablespoon of vinegar in the bottom of a 1 cup measuring cup, then top with milk. stir and then let the mixture sit undisturbed for 2 minutes.
milk + lemon
put 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in the bottom of a 1 cup measuring cup, then top with milk. stir and then let the mixture sit undisturbed for 2 minutes.
milk + yogurt
stir 1/4 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of plain yogurt together. (this makes a nice thick buttermilk substitute.)
milk + cream of tartar
stir 1 cup of milk and 1 3/4 teaspoons of cream of tartar together. stir until no lumps remain.
non-dairy milk + non-dairy yogurt + vinegar
stir 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk, 3/4 cup of non-dairy yogurt, and 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar together.
