While store-bought sriracha usually uses Xanthan gum with a fermented corn sugar base to thicken the sauce, we’ll be using organic tomato paste with gelatin instead. Blended together with the other ingredients, they give the sauce that creamy signature consistency. The vinegar creates the subtle tangy flavor and is key to breaking down the structure of the peppers as they cook. And for a hint of salty, savory flavor, we’re bringing in coconut aminos.
This recipe is lightly sweetened with stevia. Coconut sugar can be swapped for the stevia if you choose. Taste the sauce after it’s cooked to add more sugar and adjust as you need to. Be frugal when adding the sugar since you can always add more, but can’t take it away.
All the ingredients for this recipe come together beautifully, balancing the flavor and texture of the peppers. It’s the perfect addition to eggs, burgers, grilled chicken or fish and Asian-inspired dinners!
