Sometimes the most surprising recipes come from a lack of time and a little inspiration. I needed a quick sauce to put on Popcorn Chicken style tofu. What we ended up with almost magical. Not only was it quick and easy, it was perfect with the tofu and delicious on mashed garlic cauliflower. Yes, this Sweet and Spicy Sriracha sauce is quickly becoming a staple. You can adjust the amount of sriracha and sweetener to change the level of heat and sweetness.
- 1/4 cup sriracha
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 Tbl maple syrup or agave (use more if you want it sweeter)
- 1 Tbl cider vinegar
- 1 Tbl cornstarch (tapioca starch also works great)
- 2 Tbl water
In a small saucepan, combine the sriracha, ketchup, water, sweetener, and vinegar. Heat to simmering. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and 2 Tbl of water. Add to the saucepan and continue stirring until the mixture thickens.
