A classic, oil-free hummus recipe with a super spicy twist! Imagine if creamy, healthy hummus bumped into a bowl of spicy Dan Dan sauce. How magical would that be?!
Hummus is a staple in our fridge! Your's too? It's such an easy, healthy snack mid-afternoon with veggies or crackers. It's fast to make, oil free, naturally gluten free, dairy free, super healthy, and totally delicious.
I usually make a BIG batch of classic, garlic hummus, divide it up, and make a few different flavours. It's easy to change the flavour profile of hummus with only a few ingredients.
Don't be afraid to spice up your favourite store-bought hummus too!
Easy to make, inexpensive, nutritious, and super versatile, homemade hummus is a delicious addition to your diet. You have total control over the ingredients and can make it richer/creamier (tahini or water), spicier (hot sauce), tangier (lemon) or more garlicky.
Spicy Hummus Recipe Ingredients
Spicy Dan Dan inspired sauce is our current favourite hummus flavour. Dan Dan sauce is easy to make, oil-free friendly, gluten free, and super spicy.
Hummus - make homemade Hummus from scratch or buy your favourite store-bought brand.
Dan Dan Sauce - a tasty mixture of spicy, sweet, umami, and heat.
Add more or less of each to taste.
Unless you know your heat tolerance, start with the lower quantity of sriracha and then taste and adjust to your preference.
Pro Tip: Keep in mind that plain hummus will temper the heat of the Dan Dan sauce slightly. As well, if you are serving on pasta or rice or something bland, that will also change the intensity of the Dan Dan spice.
Pairing iconic, spicy Dan Dan sauce with the creamy, mild profile of classic hummus is a surprising, delicious twist. We eat it on everything.
Serving Suggestions for Spicy Hummus
This healthy, oil-free version is packed with protein and fiber plus it's a spicy flavour bomb that is loved by all eaters!
Serve hummus as an appetizer with crackers, pitas or veggies for dipping. It's a wonderful addition to buddha bowls, as a creamy base sauce for pizza instead of cheese or wrapped in a veggie burrito. We love hummus in place of butter or mayonnaise on a sandwich, stirred into hot pasta or drizzled over rice and veggies. It's delicious on everything!

Spicy Dan Dan Sauce
- Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl or jar. Taste and adjust seasonings to personal preference. I don't use the sesame oil but it does add a lovely nuttiness if you want another layer of flavour.
