i was wanting to make a simple chicken-mushroom casserole. the recipes calls for the addition of
sour cream at the end with an addicitional 10 minutes of baking time after the addition...what will
happen if i sub non fat yoghyrt for the sour cream....and then bake it...does the yoghurt go through
any changes in the oven that would make it unsuitable to use for a substitute?

thanks.LG

In my experience yogurt often separates during cooking and will not give the nice smooth result that
you get with sour cream.

You can fix that by adding about a quarter teaspoon of cornstarch or other binder (tapioca flour,
xanthan gum, or half a smashed potato, if you are gluten intolerant). The taste is a touch sharper
and a little less rich.

I make the substitution in all my everyday recipes. I make a mean 5 onion quiche using yoghurt
instead of the sour cream. that is to die for, and a yoghurt based veg or chip dip that my friends
rave about. Remember the blessed onion soup packet....?

Do you mean to mix the cornstarch with the yogurt before adding it to the recipe? SOunds like a very
useful technique.
