SRIRACHA and pretty much anything with hot sauce, hot peppers, or spice is the specialty of our house. Sriracha and Crushed Red Pepper can be found with the Salt, Pepper, and Olive Oil next to my stovetop. We even buy Frank’s Hot Sauce by the gallon (not kidding).
Needless to say, my boyfriend Dave and I LOVE spicy food.
About a month ago while on my neverending hunt for recipes to save through pages and pages of other food blogs, I came across a new Sriracha recipe that I knew I had to jot down.
This Bean Dip could fake you out into thinking it’s Hummus. It looks just like it. But it’s NOT! No sesame, no Tahini to be found here. Just some white beans, some seriously bold flavors, and our very favorite condiment- Sriracha.
Sriracha White Bean Dip
1 can Cannellini Beans, rinsed and drained
1 Tablespoon Grapeseed Oil (or olive oil)
1/2 teaspoon Hot Sesame Oil
2 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Sriracha Hot Sauce + some more for good luck
1 Clove Garlic or 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Curry Powder
1/8-1/4 cup Water (More or less for texture purposes. You can always save some of the liquid from the can of beans for this step instead)
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
Serve w/: Baby Carrots, Celery, Bell Peppers, Pita Bread, Crackers, etc.
Put everything in a blender and process until smooth. Enjoy!

So, I’m going to challenge you to only eat 1/4 of this recipe. It’s going to be hard. It’s really yummy and addictive because it’s spicy. Although it’s healthy, just like hummus, you have to be careful with your portions and not eat too much.
I made this in five minutes total after dinner the other day and split it up right away into two tupperwares for Dave and I to enjoy with carrots at work this week.
This dip will definitely please anyone who likes spicy food… give it a try instead of hummus!
