Sriracha Hummus ~ Savory Simple ~

I’m hardly the first person to develop a Sriracha obsession. It’s reached the point where I refuse to eat eggs without it. I need it with my rice at all times. I even put Sriracha on toasted pumpkin seeds or drizzle it over popcorn. It’s nothing like other hot sauces. It has just the right amount of heat with a touch of sweetness and acidity. And if you haven’t tried Sriracha hummus, you are seriously missing out.

I recently shared a recipe for roasted garlic white bean hummus and this is a very similar recipe with a few tweaks. I’ve made it with both garbanzo and white beans. Garbanzos will give you a more traditional, slightly gritty hummus consistency while white beans result in a smoother dip. You can serve it with chips or vegetables but I can’t lie- I’ve been known to eat it with a spoon. I’ve suggested using 1/4 cup of Sriracha in the recipe but if you love it as much as I do, go to town.

What are your favorite ways to use Sriracha?

    Love the images. And I bet the flavor of this hummus is just stellar! And what a gorgeous color!

  • Lauren

    This just may be the key to the perfect hummus. I’m in!

    I love Sriracha on eggs, too, or tossed with roasted chickpeas (add some lime and it’s out of this world).

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci)

    I need this hummus in my life, love!

  • Toby @ Plate Fodder

    You know, just when you think everything’s been done with sriracha and it’s going to go the way of the dinosaur… you do this.

    And yes, I must make this.

  • Roger Stowell

    I’ve only recently heard of Sriracha through American bloggers, and suddenly I’ve seen it in our French supermarket. Have to try it in hummus. Still trying to fathom how you use it with eggs but I’m guessing they’re scrambled.

    • Jennifer Farley

      I make egg and cheese sandwiches for breakfast a lot.

  • Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today

    I love hummus, I eat it so often, I need to make mine.

  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance

    Hummus is something we always have on hand, and I’m always adding hot sauce on top. I should just blend it right in!! Sounds delicious!

  • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers

    I LOVE it! I just love it!! I am so into sriracha sauce and now Trader Joe’s carries, well there version. I had to laugh! Your hummus is just perfect and your photographs are gorgeous!!

  • Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet

    Before I get to Sriracha – let me just say the first picture is stunning! STUNNING! Now, about Sriracha. I am totally obsessed too! I put it on everything: pizza, rice, sandwich, eggs… You name it! Love it! This hummus – yeah, it’s gonna happen!

  • Jen B

    Wow – that looks amazing. I have added Sriracha to Hummus sandwiches before, but mixing it right into the hummus will save a step! Great recipe!

    My favourite use of Sriracha is mixing it with mayo and making it the “spicy” in spicy California rolls. Also, and not the healthiest use, but I love to cook ramen noodles, drain the water and just cover them in the sauce. A tasty late night snack! :)

    • Jennifer Farley

      Yes to all of that

  • Tracey

    I’m on the opposite side of the spectrum – I tend to avoid sriracha (and most hot sauces) since I’m a huge spice wimp! That said, I bet this hummus is amazing!

  • Jess

    The sriracha obsession completely snuck up on me, but now I’m hooked. I love this idea – creamy with a bit of spice – can’t wait to try this, Jennifer!

    I also add Sriracha to Buffalo wings and pimento cheese sandwiches. I eat it with rice cakes too. I havea bottle at home and a bottle at work. I also put it on salads instead of fatty oils and dressings.
