Sriracha sauce is now something I regularly use in the meals I prepare. I really like the taste and the fact that you can taste it without it overpowering everything else. As my husband is a big fan (he practically puts some on everything short of chocolate), I decided to experiment a little bit and make some Sriracha hummus, to which I added some fresh lime juice. The result was a very positive one: fresh tasting and different.

For 5-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpea, drained
  • 2 tbs olive oil + extra if required
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1-3 tbs Sriracha sauce (to taste)

Preparation:

  1. In a food processor, add the chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lime juice and cumin powder. Process until smooth and add 1 or 2 extra tablespoons of olive oil if the texture is to thick in order to get a creamy hummus.
  2. Add Sriracha sauce and mix well. I added 2 tbs this time and it was tasty without being too spicy but I recommend you start with one and see for yourself.

La sauce sriracha est maintenant un ingrédient que j’utilise de façon régulière. J’aime beaucoup le goût et le fait que ça ne camoufle pas le goût des autres ingrédients. Comme mon mari en est n grand fan (il en met sur presque tout, sauf le chocolat), j’ai décidé d’expérimenté un peu et de préparer un humous à la sriracha, auquel j’ai acheté du jus de lime frais. Le résultat est positif: frais et différent!

Pour 5-6 portions

Ingrédients:

  • 1 boîte pois chiches, drainée
  • 2 tbs huile d’olive + extra au besoin
  • 1/4 tasse + 1 tbs jus de lime frais
  • 1/4 tasse tahini
  • 1/4 tsp poudre de cumin
  • 1-3 tbs Sriracha sauce (au goût)

Préparation:

  1. Dans un robot culinaire, mettre les pois chiches, l’huile d’olive, le tahini, le jus de lime et la poudre de cumin. Mélanger et ajouter 1-2 tbs d’huile d’olive si le mélange est trop épais, afin d’obtenir un humous crémeux.
  2. Ajouter la sauce Sriracha et bien mélanger. J’en ai mis 2 tbs cette fois-ci et c’était délicieux sans être trop épicé. Je vous recommande par contre de commencer pas 1 tbs et de goûter.

  1. I read the part about your husband loving sriracha too fast and thought you said he liked eating it on chocolate haha ;p
    I’m actually not a huge fan of sriracha, but I’m just not a fan of spicy. One of my best friends LOVES it though and I was just trying to find something to bring to her place for a get together tomorrow, so I’ll make this =)

    • I am not a big fan of spicy either! By putting just 1 tbs of Sriracha, you can get the nice taste without the bite.
      I hope your friend will like it! Have a nice time at your get together! 😊
