Dairy free also egg, gluten, & nut free: Follow the recipe for Egg, gluten, & nut free, but substitute soy-based yogurt for the yogurt or sour cream and replace the cream cheese with soy-based cream cheese alternative (tofutti) or silken tofu. Reduce the olive oil to 1 tablespoon, since the dairy-free version needs less liquid.
