Spicy Sriracha Hummus Recipe
- 15 ounces (420g) canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained & rinsed
- 1/2 cup (120ml) extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup (60ml) sriracha sauce
- 2 tablespoons (30ml) fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons (10ml) soy sauce (use Tamari for Gluten Free)
- 1 teaspoon (10ml) sesame seed oil
- 2 cloves garlic , roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup water (60ml) (optional, if needed)
- salt , to taste
- In blender combine all ingredients except for the water (garbanzo beans, olive oil, sriracha sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, and garlic). Blend until smooth, if necessary stopping blender a few times and stirring mixture to help it blend smooth. If needed add one tablespoon of water at a time to make the hummus creamy and smooth or to your desired consistency. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender to get all the mix down to the bottom. Rubber spatulas work better than wooden spoons. Taste for seasoning and blend in a little salt if desired.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight, allowing the flavors to marry. Hummus will keep for several days stored airtight in the refrigerator.
- Serve with your favorite pita bread, vegetable crudité, crackers, chips, toast, or fried bread.
