Vegan Buttermilk

Tofu Buttermilk
For 1 cup use add one or two tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of plant milk to and mix well, and let stand for 10 minutes. Rice milk does not work as well because of the lower protein content.

If you are thinking about substituting buttermilk for regular milk in a recipe or a prepared mix, proceed carefully, because the extra acid in the buttermilk will throw off the chemistry of the baking soda or baking powder. For each cup of buttermilk you add to a recipe that you are converting, you need to reduce the baking powder and add in baking soda. If the recipe uses enough baking powder, reduce it by 2 teaspoons and add in 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for each cup of buttermilk. If the recipe uses less than 2 tsp baking powder, then reduce it by 1 teaspoon and add in 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda for each cup of buttermilk.
