Sriracha, also dubbed “rooster sauce,” adds just the right amount of kick to any dish — literally, any dish. You can use this hot sauce as a dip or add it as a condiment atop soups, noodles, and even burgers. This versatile hot sauce comes from Thailand and is named after the city of Si Racha in the Chonburi Province.

Traditionally used as a dip for seafood in Asian cuisine, sriracha has now made its way into western cuisine. Now, it’s not uncommon to find a red sriracha bottle, with the iconic rooster picture, on the tables of many restaurants.

Although sriracha is usually vegan, there are some brands that contain added ingredients, such as anchovy paste and oyster sauce. Because of this, making your own homemade vegan sriracha can save you the trouble of looking for a vegan brand.
