Creamy Sriracha Hummus WITH GIVEAWAY

Hummus is such a quick and easy side dish to make at home. It’s also a great base for adding other ingredients into it to give it a whole different flavor. Like Sriracha for instance, what about making a sriracha hummus?

This sriracha hummus can be made in under 10 minutes, has bold flavor and nice heat that you'll want to put on everything!

Sriracha hummus is an awesome way to add some heat to a dip. Since sriracha has a nice garlic and vinegar taste to it as well, you could almost get by not adding any garlic or vinegar/lemon juice to the hummus if you were in a bind were missing one of those ingredients!

The key to a good hummus is getting the right texture, which comes from the way the beans are prepared. I’ve read recently in a Food and Wine article from a chef that boiling your beans in baking soda will help to tenderize the beans to get an amazing creamy consistency.

Am I telling you to boil your beans in baking soda? No, but you at the very least want to remove the skin from your beans to get a nice creamy texture.

This Sriracha Hummus is made for so much more than dipping, for example, you could add it into a sandwich wrap, a Mediterranean quesadilla with hummus and feta cheese and a little chicken perhaps, or even in a veggie burger. That is, if you can get it into the recipe before the entire hummus disappears!

Prep

Tahini paste

A traditional hummus using tahini paste, which is a sesame seed paste, and can be  little pricey and if you don’t use it a lot, it’s not worth the price. I’ll tend to add a little cumin to substitute for tahini, to give the hummus some flavor. If you have tahini, go ahead and use about 1 tbsp, and leave out the cumin!

Getting the right texture

Again, the key to a creamy texture is from removing the skin from the beans, this is really simple, but a little tedious. If you squeeze the been from the end you’ll find that the bean just pops right out of the skin. Doing this for 15 oz of beans will take about 5 minutes or so, depending on how quick you are.

BONUS: DIY Pita Chips

Super easy thing to do is buy a pack of pita bread, cut it into fourths, then peel it in half to get two “chips” per quarter. Brush a little olive oil, and sprinkle with some Himalayan sea salt. let it cook in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes so that they’re nice and brown. Takes a little extra time, but it saves you a nice chunk of change compared to buying pita chips from the store!

  • Paula @ Vintage Kitchen

    I make and eat hummus like it’s going out of style, but never thought of adding sriracha to it. Clever and easy way to spice it up! And it can be used for so many dishes!

  • Chrissie Baker (The Busy Baker

    You had me at sriracha…seriously, this looks SO good!! My husband would absolutely love this. Thanks for posting.

  • I love hummus any way I can get it, and srirachi is pretty much my BFF, so yes, this sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  • Razena Schroeder

    Your webpage keeps flashing and I wonder if it’s the sriracha that is making it too hot too handle. Love the hummus and usually end up adding sriracha to anything.

  • I love the beautiful colour of this hummus! So vibrant!

  • Tracey Rezapour

    I love hummus. I think I need this in my life!

  • Boiling your beans in baking soda… what a great tip! I’m totally going to try it the next time a make hummus. I’m so glad I read this post! Sriracha in hummus also sounds awesome. Will have to try that too!

  • Bunny

    A Lebanese friend shared her recipe with me and she says the secret to the creaminess is water. While it is processing I add almost a full cup of water and let it all process for about three full minutes. Light, creamy and wonderful!

    • Totally agree with that as well! I like to cut the water with lemon however to give it more of a zing!

  • Making hummus is on my culinary bucket list. I like spicy foods so this recipe looks to be a good place for me to start!

  • I can’t tell you how many gallons of hummus we go through in this house — and I constantly add hot sauce to it. This makes so much sense.

  • Dan from Platter Talk

    I like the “lift” here from the sriracha sauce and the red wine vinegar. Very nice.

  • Kim

    I love making hummus! It is so fast and such a great healthy snack. Yum!

  • Cricket Plunkett

    This is my kind of snack! Can’t wait to try it!

  • I purchased this type of hummus in the store but never thought to make it myself. Thanks for the how to photos so that I can make this healthier version you have shared!

  • Sarah Anne Stubbs

    I love all things sriracha! Can’t wait to try this out!
