16 Healthy Recipes With Sriracha Sauce
November 7, 2013
Don’t judge this hot sauce by its extra “r” – although it’s pronounced “SIR-rotch-ah,” it’s also been called “delicious.” By me. It’s a Thai hot sauce that adds heat to any dish, but tastes better than Frank’s or pretty much any others. Now, of course if I’m making Mexican food, Cholula has my heart. But anything Asian gets a dash or two of Sriracha sauce. The hot sauce has recently taken the internet by storm, and people are finally beginning to realize the beauty of the sauce.
In fact, there’s an entire Sriracha cookbook! Although stirring Sriracha sauce into any stir fry or fried rice recipe is sure to be a success, I’ve gathered more healthy recipes with Sriracha sauce so you can learn to use the hot sauce to its full potential.
