yogurt sub for sour cream?
Somewhere I got the idea that you can substitute yogurt for sour cream. I only needed a small amount (less than a cup) for a skillet recipe (never made before). Shallots and spinach was in the pan and sour cream was to be added. The result was supposed to be a creamy sauce. Instead I used plain greek yogurt. It seemed to disperse into tiny white chunks. No white creamy sauce.
The taste seemed fine but I didn't know what it was supposed to taste like.
Was this just a quirk? Is substituting yogurt for sour cream a good idea?
My reason for doing it was that if I bought a small container of sour cream, only used a part of it, I would end up throwing the rest out. With the yogurt, DH would eat the rest of it.
