Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 “I’m not a vegan.  I’m not even a vegetarian. That being said, I love this book.  It’s packed with creative, tasty ways to cook with (and make your own) Sriracha sauce. If you’re a fan of the combustible-yet-delicious sauce known as Sriracha, these recipes are for you.”
—Matt Inman, creator of
“If you need a jolt of veg-centric inspiration with Sriracha, piquant darling of the condiment world, this is your book.
Randy insightfully works all sorts of new culinary angles, showing the versatility of the much-loved ‘rooster sauce’ beyond the squeeze.”
—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day and creator of
“Randy has forever changed the culture of Sriracha, taking us beyond the bottle to explore the freshest vegetables of the season, cooking vibrant meals loaded with flavors and textures. His fresh recipes make each bite exciting, satisfying, fun, and memorable with the lingering, spicy kick of Sriracha. Gotta love him for that!”
—Todd Porter and Diane Cu,
“I always have a bottle of Sriracha in my fridge and use it on everything, so the first thing I did with this book was make my own batch. Then I proceeded through the chapters, finding ways I never imagined before to bring this beloved elixir into my cooking. I salute Randy for daring to go veg, and for writing a book that we carnivores will also enjoy. He knows better than anyone that Sriracha unites us all.”
—Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, founding editor,

Library Journal
Freelance food writer Clemens became a vegetarian shortly after completing The Sriracha Cookbook. Though he insists this follow-up isn't just for vegans, it will appeal most to readers who are comfortable cooking with what he calls "hippie ingredients" (e.g., Bragg Liquid Aminos, flaxseed, coconut oil, and nutritional yeast). Global flavors infuse such recipes as Mouth on Fire Minestrone, Spicy California Rolls, and Spicy Tabbouleh-Stuffed Dolmas. Clemens covers most courses (e.g., snacks, soups, breakfasts, desserts) and includes plenty of gluten-free variations. VERDICT Vegan and vegetarian fans of the popular Sriracha condiment will enjoy Clemens's latest.

Read an Excerpt

I f*%#ing love vegetables! That, coupled with my addiction to Sriracha, is what ultimately led to the writing of this book. And while I am a firm believer in the righteous virtues of vegetarianism and veganism—of which, there are many—that isn’t the focus here. This book isn’t about labels; it’s not just for vegans or vegetarians. It’s for anyone who’s incurably passionate about the splendiferous flavors to be had straight from the ground, for anyone who’s picked up an eggplant or fennel bulb at the market and dreamed of the possibilities.

I’ve noticed that over the past decade, cooking and cooking instruction have become decidedly meat-centric, resulting in many home cooks forgetting—or, worse yet, never being taught—how to properly prepare and celebrate the glorious bounty of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes that we’re fortunate enough to have at our fingertips.
This problem is only compounded when people wrongfully believe that cooking without meat means replacing it with strange, texturized, overly processed soy-based products that have been extruded into shapes vaguely resembling meat, before being breaded and fried. Ugh. You wanna know the truth? I can’t stand most of that garbage. It’s generally pretty awful tasting, and it usually has very little to do with healthy, fresh ingredients.

And while I’ve certainly got a place in my kitchen for tempeh and tofu, I don’t like my meals to revolve around them. True, you’ll find them used within these pages, but only when I feel they can contribute something to the flavor and texture of my beloved veggies, right at the center of my plate.

If you love vegetables too, and a nice spicy kick to boot, let me be the first to congratulate you. You’ve found the right book. If you’ve had good vegetables at a friend’s house or while dining out but aren’t sure how to cook them properly at home, sweet! You’ve found the right book. And if you don’t like vegetables, I’m willing to bet it’s because you’ve only had them either overcooked or undercooked your entire life, in which case, you’ve finally found the right book!

Whatever your reasons for giving my cool little book a shot—health, ethical, environmental, economic, a devotion to anything and everything Sriracha-related, or simply curiosity—use these recipes with an open mind. Love them for all that they are, and for all that they aren’t. You’ll be glad you did!

Mouth on Fire Minestrone

Minestrone is a wonderful rustic Italian soup that doesn’t really have a prescribed recipe because it was traditionally made with whatever vegetables were available, and made thicker and heartier with beans and pasta. I beg you to use this version, which couldn’t be easier, as a starting point for your own imaginative creations based on whatever vegetables are fresh and in season at your market. Makes 4 to 6 servings
4 cups vegetable stock
1/4 cup Sriracha
6 Roma tomatoes, diced
3 carrots, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 red onion, diced
1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano, or 11/2 teaspoons dried
1-3/4 cups cooked cannellini beans, or 1 (15-ounce) can, undrained
1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped
 Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat, combine the stock, Sriracha, tomatoes, carrots, celery, onion, zucchini, garlic, bay leaves, and oregano. Bring to a boil, then immediately lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Discard the bay leaves. Stir in the beans and kale and cook until both are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. Stored in the refrigerator, leftovers will keep for 1 week.

    Sriracha has become the latest darling of the culinary world...t

    Sriracha has become the latest darling of the culinary world...this addictive blend of chiles, vinegar and garlic is giving traditional hot sauce a run for its money on tables across the country. Hot on the heels of The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 "Rooster Sauce" Recipes that Pack a Punch, Veggie-Lover's Sriracha Cookbook has 50 vegan "rooster sauce" recipes from drinks and snacks to soups, salads, main dishes, breakfast ideas and desserts. You'll find something to please every palate; there's a healthy dash of the international, from Middle Eastern muhammara and hummus to the Mediterranean, Latin America, Caribbean, and Asia (pho sure!).

    One of the greatest features is that yes, this is a vegan cookbook, but each recipe comes with suggestions to adapt recipes for (lacto-ovo) vegetarians as well as gluten-free diets. It's a much-appreciated gesture; I do make vegan dishes from time to time, but I love that the substitutions are right there, so I don't have to mentally convert ground flaxseed and water to egg whites, or ponder how to make gluten-free panko substitutes.

    I tried four recipes: the Sriracha caponata (page 27), zippy zucchini zuppa with asparagus and cannellini beans (page 36), the Sriracha broccoli slaw (page 47), and the maple-Sriracha roasted Brussels sprouts with cranberry wild rice (page 87). Next up is the warm Dijon-Sriracha potato salad with toasted hazelnuts, spicy tabbouleh-stuffed dolmas, and the super simple peanut butter and Sriracha cookies w/ chocolate chips!For my recipe testing, I used two readily-available brands of Sriracha, the ubiquitous Huy Fong, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, 17 Ounce Bottle and the new Trader Joe's Sriracha sauce. The cranberry wild rice is going to be my new Thanksgiving standby; it is an addictive blend of toothsome wild rice, cranberries, chopped pecans, and rosemary topped with caramelized Brussels sprouts (the rice minus the Brussels sprouts would make a great filling for halved acorn squash as a vegan holiday entrée). It also makes a stunning centerpiece if you take the time to arrange the Brussels sprouts in rows across the rice (I had uploaded a photo as an example, but Amazon recently disabled this feature). The broccoli slaw was a snap to throw together using bagged broccoli slaw from Trader Joe's; lacking fresh ginger, I threw in some slivered crystallized ginger, and the spicy bite complemented the slaw nicely. The zippy zucchini zuppa was exactly that; I loved the addition of asparagus late in the cooking, as it gave a lovely crunch and color to the soup. The caponata was the first time I'd tried making my own at home, and I loved the combination of sweet (from raisins) and tart (cider vinegar, tomato puree, Kalamata olives).The 50 recipes in "Veggie-Lover's Sriracha Cookbook" offer tasty and quick ways to add more fresh veggies into your diet with a splash of Sriracha. This is comfort food at its best, from Sriracha-cauliflower mac n' cheeze and banh xeo (Vietnamese "crepes" filled with savory fillings) to curried kale and squash risotto, to some snappy tipples like watermelon-Sriracha sangria and mango-Sriracha margaritas that are a perfect way to beat the summer heat. Best of all, Randy's recipes inspired me to start creating my own vegetarian Sriracha-spiked creations!
