You’ve probably come across that bottle of Sriracha in your cabinet or fridge a few times and wondered what else you can do with it other than spicing up a few staples. Well, there are lots of really kicking Sriracha recipes out there, and if you’ve got any basic cooking knowledge, you can create some pretty amazing dishes that use Sriracha sauce as an ingredient.
Here are our two favorite Sriracha cookbooks – one for the meat eaters out there and another for those that like things totally vegetarian (and both from the same author.) You’ll definitely find more than a few recipes in each that’ll fill your spicy food craving in creative culinary ways.
The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch
Food writer and chef Randy Clemens really nails it with The Sriracha Cookbook. It turns that bottle of Rooster Sauce into a seriously innovative ingredient. The Sriracha Burger and the Sriracha-Bacon Cornbread are worth the price of admission alone, but there’s a whole lot more in this cookbook, from dinner meals to desserts.
The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook: 50 Vegan “Rooster Sauce” Recipes that Pack a Punch
Not to be outdone by…well…himself, Randy Clemens has another cool Sriracha recipes collection developed for vegetarians and vegans. There are a lot of delicious recipes in here, from the sweet and spicy Watermelon Sriracha Sangria to the surprisingly rich Sriracha and Cauliflower Mac and Cheese.
Whether purchased together or separately, the Sriracha Cookbooks are an excellent way to heat up your recipe collection. They are also a nice Christmas gift for foodies who love the spice, so consider them the next time you’ve got to impress your hot sauce loving friends come gift-giving time.
