This spicy Sriracha Hummus is made in minutes and is cheaper than store-bought. Eat it with veggies, chips, or in a sandwich.
This Sriracha Hummus is around the tenth or eleventh hummus recipe that I have created. Do I have a hummus obsession? Probably.
Am I ever going to stop creating hummus recipes? Probably not. I even have a dark chocolate hummus that tastes like a dessert but is pretty healthy.
I keep making them partly because those little 8-ounce tubs of hummus are just NOT worth their price. I also do it because hummus is one of those dips that is super easy to make, and making your own tastes better than store-bought.
I have found that once you have created your own personal basic hummus recipe formula, then you have it made. Pretty much all of my hummus recipes start the same way - with the same amount of tahini, garbanzo beans, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. After that, I add whatever I want.
- Garbanzo beans (chickpeas): Adds the texture, flavor, and creaminess hummus is known for.
- Tahini: Also a traditional hummus ingredient. Adds a nutty sesame flavor.
- Sriracha sauce or sriracha powder: Adds spice and flavor.
- Lemon juice: Adds a bright tart flavor.
- Garlic: Adds a pungent flavor.
- Water: Thins out the hummus. Mix first without water to see how you like it.
- Olive oil: Adds creaminess.
- Salt: Enhances the other flavors.

Blend garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, olive oil, and sriracha sauce or sriracha powder in a food processor until creamy. Add water if desired. It thickens up a little when refrigerated.
- I like things spicy. If you don't like things too spicy, start with less sriracha to see how you like it.
- If you plan on serving it right away you may not want any water, especially if you use sriracha sauce instead of sriracha powder. It will thicken up a bit after refrigerating, so keep that in mind.
- Veggies: carrots, cucumber, celery, bell pepper
- Tortilla chips
- Toast or baguette
- Pita chips or pita bread (if you know of a good gluten-free vegan brand of either, I'd love to know!)
- Vegan hummus quesadilla
- Tortilla pizza
